Robach has worked at NBC News/MSNBC for the past nine years, with her latest stint on weekend editions of "Today," the website reports. She will join ABC News the day after Memorial Day as a correspondent reporting for all broadcasts, the piece adds.
In her goodbye comments Saturday, Robach, who is married to actor Andrew Shue, thanked co-anchor Lester Holt along with others involved with “Today.”

“Of course, Lester, you have been an amazing partner.”
