Meredith Vieira steps down from ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire after eleven seasons. She is known as a journalist, television personality and game show host. Vieira had appeared on The View and Dateline NBC did announce on Thursday, January 19, 2013 that she is stepping down from her duties.
She would like to work on a new project at NBC and has grown “tired” of her role on the game show, the New York Daily News reports. There was no comment from fifty nine year old Vieira and she will continue as host through the month of May, then reruns will go on until a replacement is found.
She is trying to venture out on her own YouTube channel featuring stories on people’s lives, according to the Huffington Post.
