After 22 years with NBC, 15 of them appearing on the TODAY show, alumna Natalie Morales has joined The Talk, CBS’s Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show featuring a panel of entertainment personalities discussing trends, pop culture, and current issues. Morales RC’94 (a 2009 inductee into the Rutgers Hall of Distinguished Alumni) addresses headline news and more with Sheryl Underwood, Amanda Kloots, Jerry O’Connell, and Akbar Gbajabiamila. “It’s an extraordinary opportunity to join this team at The Talk,” Morales said in November, when she made the announcement. “I love the new energy and direction and couldn’t be more excited.”
