The hour included surprises guests including Dean Cain and Ryan Eggold, as well as Barry Manilow, who performed “Cant’ Smile Without You.” Regis Philbin also made a video appearance to pay tribute to his former TV co-host. There was also a surprise segment featuring her son Cody, 28, and daughter Cassidy, 25.

“I have 30 seconds to say what has taken me a lifetime to say,” she said while crying during the final moments of the show.

“Jeremiah 29 says, ‘I know the plans I have 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 like he wants to love you, like I am loved by all of you. Thank you.”

Jenna Bush Hager to Replace Kathie Lee Gifford as Hoda Kotb's 'Today' Show Co-Anchor

A few months ago, Kathie Lee Gifford announced that she would be stepping away from the fourth hour of the Today show as a longtime co-host with Hoda Kotb.

NBC has announced that Jenna Bush Hager will take over for Kathie Lee and co-host the fourth hour with Hoda.

“It feels humbling and I can’t believe it,” Jenna said. “My dad [former President George W. Bush] just wrote me three words, which made me weep. He said, ‘Very proud dad.’ Which I’m like, what is there to be proud about? I’m just drinking wine in the morning!”

Jenna then offered some words for Kathie Lee, saying, “You have been such a role model and so generous with your time. … You are beloved here in so many ways and if I can use some of your grace and have a half of what you’ve done, my life will be a very happy one.”

Ellen Pompeo Calls Out Hoda Kotb & Kathie Lee Gifford Just Hours Before Kathie Lee's 'Today' Announcement

Ellen Pompeo responded to a tweet send out by Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb‘s official Twitter account where she expressed a bit of displeasure.

The official account tweeted out, “.@EllenPompeo and @PatrickDempsey haven’t spoken since he left ‘Grey’s Anatomy’” in response to a story that went viral about the former Grey’s co-stars.

Ellen responded, “Hey here’s a suggestion!! Maybe all of you over there lay off the booze and pay attention to the real conversation that took place ?,” and included some crazy face and wine glass emojis.

She then added, “@klgandhoda and whoever is in charge of this account.. the two women you work for deserve to be represented a bit more dignified.”

Kathie Lee just announced her exit from the Today show.

Kathie Lee Gifford to Leave 'Today' Show

Kathie Lee Gifford is set to leave the Today show after over a decade co-hosting the fourth hour of the morning program with Hoda Kotb.

The news was announced in a memo from NBC News chief Noah Oppenheim, acquired by Deadline.

In a statement, Kathie Lee told Noah, “In 2008, I joined the Today Show family intending to spend one year. But something unexpected happened along the way: I fell in love with a beautiful, talented, extraordinary Egyptian goddess named Hoda, and an amazing group of individuals who work tirelessly and joyfully at their jobs, many of them starting at midnight, creating an unprecedented four hours of live television. I stayed year after year making a million memories with people I will never forget. I leave Today with a grateful heart but I’m truly excited for this new creative season in my life. Many thanks to all the wonderful people who made the years fly by.”

Noah added, “Kathie Lee is generously staying with us through the show’s next anniversary, April 7, 2019. We will have much more to share before then about our plans for that hour, which will, of course, continue to include Hoda.”
