Natalie loved her time working on Today, where she spent 22 years on the popular daytime show.

While she was sad to leave and remains close to her former co-stars, she was more than ready to try something new when CBS offered her the role.

Talking to People about the decision, she explained: "I knew The Talk could really showcase my personality, but also that I knew I would have great chemistry with the other co-hosts, which I had at the Today show, of course, but living here in Los Angeles — this is the big game in town.

"I had been on this show as a guest before, and every time I came, I just really loved the experience of being here. I loved the audience interaction and how involved they are with the hosts. It's funny because from the minute I walked out here, it was like I felt like I'm at home," she added.
