Vieira, of course, is no stranger to the daytime talk format. Before replacing Couric on "Today," she was a co-host of "The View" from 1997 to 2006. She also hosted the syndicated version of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" for 11 seasons.
Since leaving her perch at "Today" in 2011 – a departure that led to serious troubles at the once-dominant morning show -- Vieira has continued to serve as a special correspondent for NBC News.
