Wallace will have executive oversight of the show and continue to report to NBC News president Steve Capus.
"Don Nash deserves to be at the helm of Today," Capus said in a statement. "He is a beloved member of the Today family who brings vision, commitment and a deep familiarity to all aspects of the broadcast. The formidable individual talents of Alex, Don and the Today leadership are now combined and I'm confident our team is well positioned for success."
