She has been in the industry for over 25 years, during which she has forged a strong following as a journalist and a TV host.

For years, she was known as one of the faces of The Today Show, and she was an appreciated team member, particularly on her segment of the show, Today’s Take, a feat that made her the first African American woman to co-anchor The Today Show.

During her third stint in a media outlet, she got her first chance to diversify her portfolio and she worked as a consumer reporter, a TV host as well as her primary role as a general assignment reporter.

The excellence with which she performed her role at WFLD-TV got her a position at the national level, working for MSNBC and NBC News. She worked for both networks for a decade between 2007 and 2017, during which she recorded several milestones like a one-on-one interview with Barack Obama, substitute anchor for Countdown with Keith Olbermann, co-host of The Big Picture.

Unfortunately, her time on the show was cut short and she was replaced with Megyn Kelly in February 2017. According to reports, she was offered a lesser role which she refused to accept, instead choosing to walk away from her contract which was due to expire in February 2017.

What Has She Been Doing Since Then?

The show was originally supposed to begin to air in 2017, but the show, which was in development in conjunction with Harvey Weinstein suffered a setback as a result of his scandal.
