Carson Daly is leaving his late night show to become a full time host on The Today Show. Carson will be the show's new social media expert and report from The Orange Room which, according to NBC News President, is "a brand new, state-of-the-art interactive digital studio that will allow our 'Today' team and fans of the show to connect using social media and a variety of other exciting digital platforms." We're hoping that Carson will make that a lot cooler than it sounds.
Twitter is reacting surprisingly well to the news. We had no idea that Carson Daly was such a beloved national treasure. Sorry, Seacrest!
@CarsonDaly Usually the last face I see at night, giving great dreams. Now I will be happy to see you in the mornings on #Today.

Used to rush home from school 2 watch @CarsonDaly on TRL now I'm up early watching him on @todayshow. Does this mean we're all old now?
