Billy Bush Releases Statement After Leaving 'Today' Show

Billy Bush has officially taken his exit from the Today show due to his involvement with Donald Trump‘s leaked lewd tape, as NBC announced earlier today.

The 45-year-old host has reportedly reached a settlement with the network for an undisclosed amount.

Billy Bush will be leaving the Today show’s 9 a.m. hour, effective today,” Noah Oppenheim, the executive in charge of the show, wrote in a staff memo on Monday (October 17).

“While he was a new member of the Today team, he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family,” Noah added. “We wish him success as he goes forward.”

Billy has also released his own statement: “I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead.”
