"I've been wearing a lot of hats lately. I've been doing the Sunday show, I've been doing our third hour of the Today show with Al [Roker] and Tamron [Hall], I've been doing Morning Joe every day. There's been a lot going on," Willie began.

"So I've got to take one of the hats off, I've got a big head, but not big enough for all those hats. So I'm gonna step away from the third hour of the Today show," he continued.

"It's hard to do that because of the love I have for you guys, because of the love I have for all of our producers, all of our viewers who have been so good to all of us, but I pass the hat to a guy with another big head — Billy Bush," the father-of-two said.
Willie joined Today back in 2012. Though he is now taking a step back from the program's third hour, he will continue to star on Sunday Today and the MSNBC morning show Morning Joe.
