In a presentation of NBC corporate cooperative energy, Morales will likewise get to be one of the hosts of the daily amusement show “Access Hollywood” and the daytime syndicated program “Access Hollywood Live.”
It is a bizarre move, mirroring various facilitating and configuration changes at NBC’s lead morning appear.
The customary reporter on “Today” is being eliminated. Spirits won’t be supplanted, NBC says.
Rather, co-has Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie will keep on taking the lead on news features.
Spirits’ turn was declared on Wednesday evening.
Maker Noah Oppenheim, who turned into the official responsible for the morning indicate a year ago, has tried to make the morning show newsier, while in the meantime holding some components and lighter admission.
To that end, Morales will lead scope of stimulation stories and different subjects that have West Coast associations. She is required to show up on “Today” most days – well before sunrise, obviously, in the Pacific time zone.
Alongside reporter’s, other morning show part has been co-facilitating the 9 a.m. Eastern hour of “Today.”
However, that hour is in flux. “Access” co-have Billy Bush is moving from L.A. to New York to assume control over the 9 a.m. hour, as indicated by various reports.
Shrub’s part is required to be declared in mid May at NBC’s yearly presentation for sponsors.
With respect to Morales, her agreement was coming due in the not so distant future. The New York Post covered Tuesday that Morales was in discusses new parts with “Today” and “Access Hollywood.”
“West Coast grapple” is a recently made title. What it truly means will turn out to be completely clear in the months to come.
In an interior update, Oppenheim clarified it along these lines: “Natalie has as of now been investing a considerable measure of energy in California, reporting live from uncommon occasions like the Oscars, Golden Globes and Latin American Music Awards, directing VIP meetings and set visits, and initiating two major arrangement spotlighting ladies who are pioneers in Silicon Valley and Hollywood. With our show’s expanding concentrate on West Coast stories, it turned out to be clear to me that having a lasting stay nearness in L.A. would be of colossal worth.”
