The 54-year-old Curry, the New York Times reported, will likely take over the job next month. She's been the show's news anchor for 14 years.

The Today Show's 9 am anchor Natalie Morales takes over Curry's news spot, while White House correspondent / MSNBC personality Savannah Guthrie will take over the 9 am anchor slot.

NBC is expected to formally announce Curry's promotion in a news conference Monday.

Vieira, 57, is credited with keeping the show's numbers afloat after Katie Couric left five years ago to anchor the CBS Evening News.

Vieira frequently mentioned her desire to spend with her husband Richard M. Cohen, who’s had bouts with multiple sclerosis and cancer.

"If were to leave at the end of next year because it's time for me, I wouldn't jump into another show," Vieira told Ladies Home Journal in 2010. "I would look forward to not working, to traveling with Richard and carving out time for us.”
