Meredith Vieira will be leaving her position as co-host of NBC's 'The Today Show,' according to the Hollywood Reporter. The news veteran will step down in June--almost three months before the end of her contract.

Ann Curry will take Vieira's place as co-host and Natalie Morales will replace Curry as newsreader. An official announcement could come as early as next week.

Vieira is apparently "beloved" by the 'Today' cast and crew, but a combination of long, tiring hours and personal struggles (her husband is battling multiple sclerosis and cancer) are likely the reason she's leaving. Vieira would only sign a one-year deal when her contract expired last year, and has been open about her husband's health problems.
