Billy Bush is officially leaving NBC’s Today.
Bush came under fire after a video was released in which he and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump were making crude comments about women.
Today was quick to act, suspending Bush a few days after the 2005 Access Hollywood tape leaked.
The longtime entertainment reporter joined Todayduring the Rio Olympics this summer as host of the 9 a.m. hour.
He issued the following statement:
I am deeply grateful for the conversations I’ve had with my daughters, and for all of the support from family, friends and colleagues. I look forward to what lies ahead.
