Kathie Lee Gifford's run at the "Today Show" is ending.

The President of NBC News announced that she's made the decision to no longer co-host the 10am hour of the program with Hoda Kotb. She’ll stay on until her 11th anniversary of the show, which is on April 7th. 

His memo to the staff said: ”As we all know, Kathie Lee's plate has been overflowing lately with film, music, and book projects, and after giving us eleven extraordinary years, she's decided to focus her attention full-time on those other creative endeavors." 

Kathie Lee had originally only signed on to do the show for one year. 

She said during the show Tuesday, "Something unexpected happened along the way: I fell in love with a beautiful, talented, extraordinary Egyptian goddess named Hoda, and an amazing group of individuals who work tirelessly and joyfully at their jobs, many of them starting at midnight, creating an unprecedented four hours of live television. I stayed year after year making a million memories with people I will never forget. I leave Today with a grateful heart."

RUMOR HAS IT: Jenna Bush Hager is the frontrunner to replace Kathie Lee.
