NEW YORK (AP) - NBC “Today” show anchor Natalie Morales is moving West to become host of the entertainment show “Access Hollywood,” but will keep a role on the morning program.

Morales has been the news anchor for the “Today” show and co-hosts the morning program’s third hour, which begins at 9 a.m. ET.

Noah Oppenheim, NBC News senior vice president in charge of the show, says in a memo to staff that she’ll become the “Today” show West Coast anchor, reporting on stories as the program is increasing its focus on stories from the region.

NBC said Wednesday it hasn’t been determined whether she will continue to host the third hour from California or if that role will go to someone else.
