I first saw Meredith on tv in 1997. I was living in the US due to an University Student Exchange Programm.
When me and my roommates didn't have class we would watch 'the View'. We loved it!
I particularly noticed Meredith Vieira and thought she was very intelligent, beautiful and OMG soooo funny !
I only knew her from 'The View' but now, thanks to YouTube, I can catch some scenes from WWTBAM and The Today Show.
Too bad she is only to be seen on american TV and not in Europe, but I guess the internet makes up for it.
To sum up, I think she's a very talented, smart, clever, gorgeous woman and a role model for all women out there !
