Lester Holt To Take Over Dateline NBC Starting This Week

Dateline NBC is getting itself a new host: When the show begins its new season on September 23rd, Lester Holt will officially replace Ann Curry, who is also juggling her a.m. co-hosting duties on the Today show.

Holt isn’t at a loss for work himself, as he’s often seen on NBC and MSNBC. Like, really often. (He even admitted that “Sometimes, I’ll be flipping the channel at home and think, ‘Wow, there’s a lot of me on TV.'”) He’ll also be continuing his job as the co-anchor of the Today show’s weekend edition and fill-in anchor / correspondent for NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and Today.
