Weary of the early hours and concerned about her husband, who has multiple sclerosis, Vieira is expected to leave as co-anchor when her contract expires later this year, TV Guide reports.
Vieira, 57, took the job in 2006 when Katie Couric became anchor at the CBS Evening News. Couric, 54, is also reportedly leaving.
