Meredith Vieira Exits 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'

Meredith Vieira doesn't want to be a "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" host anymore.

Vieira has left the long-running game show, a spokeswoman for the show told TheWrap on Friday.

Vieira has hosted the syndicated show since 2002. Regis Philbin hosted the first run of the show, which ran on ABC.

Fear not, though; you'll still see her asking contestants if they want to phone a friend for a while. The remainder of the season's shows, which will run through the end of May, have already been taped, with Vieira in the host's chair. And repeats will run through the fall of the show's next season.

Vieira's production company has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.

The show is currently searching for a new host for the show -- so dust off those audition reels.
