Saying tersely, “It’s enough already,” 88-year-old movie critic Gene Shalit has announced that he is leaving the Today show after 40 years. Shalit’s final appearance on the NBC morning show will come on Thursday, when the show is due to present a retrospective of memorable Shalit celebrity interviews. Shalit, who had an illustrious career in print journalism and NBC Radio before joining Today, said that he doesn’t intend to retire completely and that he hopes to pursue other activities in publishing radio, and commercials. NBC did not indicate who would replace him.
