This is not easy to say that -- going to be my last morning as a regular -- of today.
I was so -- pardon -- family but I would have a new title of the new role.
And this is not it's as I expected to ever leave this couch after fifteen years back.
And so grateful.
Especially to all of you who watch.

For sixteen years of being beaten -- by GMA and Al Roker staple of that shell.
Turns on Matt Lauer who just got like -- 500 -- dollar contract.
Dana how bad is the blood over the air and how much pressure is on Matt -- to get -- -- with these people now.
I think that's -- definition of awkward and I think if NBC had to do whatever it and it might have handled that whole thing a little differently but -- and a Al Roker.
I -- he's earned his stripes over -- to have been there along time and I think he's felt.
In his his old team because look at slip you know what it's like and live on an unscripted show Eric Bolling do you think that he did that on purpose to -- he said later I don't know that.

So the ratings are slipping but there's clearly some tension going on yes my contention is is they weren't getting along and that's why the ratings are slipping.

We allow it doesn't get along Savannah Guthrie who's got migraine headaches and how -- won it in curry.
How will the world ever be the same and we'll look -- apple GMA if they don't get along it shouldn't be the same may be the issue is Matt Lauer.
Maybe they should get rid of him I mean he's been there the longest maybe he's generating issue not not the -- rebels say that's the -- rolled out Savannah Guthrie.
I found to be so offensive and I don't care I I would have said.
You're doing what you're bringing and -- on and you're gonna have some awkward exchange and she's gonna cry and then you're bringing me and -- mean they really NBC really messed that up and let's.
Migraines have to do with -- logistics he came back and shoot feels the pressure evidently and I migraines -- so bits and she came back that's also disturbing disturbing these chemistry and a lot of -- that migraines and you know that migraines are not actually there as one of the only things that don't doesn't get a lot of research park that some people think -- sexist.
Because it's women use it again I think I know a lot about this Korea -- are used against.

That was the most depressing.
Things that you should you're you're so excited about talking about this -- and that woman crying -- we never -- that again I mean prozac sales are gonna.
Go through the roof.
As a result -- that I -- happy and excited about it -- it's ugly and he has it -- my gadget no hair he's ugly politics and now I was a great guy.
I'm sure I think Greg and Leo yeah you got there but look for now who knows it's gonna happen.
