WATCH: Kathie Lee Gifford Bids Emotional Farewell to Today Show After 11 Years


After 11 memorable years hosting the Today Show, Kathie Lee Gifford said goodbye in an emotional farewell.

Joined on the studio stage by fellow co-hosts Hoda Kotb, Jenna Bush, Willie Geist, Carson Daly, Willie Geist, Craig Melvin, and Al Roker, the entire crew appropriately shared a glass of champagne while the studio audience stood and applauded.

Gifford quoted from the Bible, Jeremiah 29:11, in her final send-off, saying “‘I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.'”

“That’s not just true for me, you guys, that’s true for everybody watching. Trust Him. Let him love you like he wants to love you. Like I’m loved by all of you.”
