40-Year Vet Gene Shalit Exits NBC's 'Today'

9 November 2010 4:15 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Update: A tribute to Gene Shalit will air on Thursday on Today. Gene Shalit will be leaving NBC's Today show where he has been a fixture for the past 40 years. Shalit will make his final appearance (for now) on the top-rated morning program on Thursday. Shalit joined Today in 1970 as a regular contributor until he replaced Joe Garagiola in 1973 as arts editor and critic focusing on movie reviews and celebrity interviews. "Gene is not just a ‘Today’ show treasure but a television legend and an American icon," Today executive producer Jim Bell said. "We salute him for his unprecedented 40-year run on a single television program, a feat unlikely to ever be matched." Said Shalit, "It's enough already." »
