    MATT LAUER, co-host: And now to our big announcement. As you all know, I've been with the TODAY show for over 14 years. I cannot tell you the joy that my time here has brought me, sitting beside the likes of Katie , Meredith , and Ann. Well, I've decided it's soon going to be time for me to say goodbye. So this November I am leaving.

    AL ROKER reporting: What?

    NATALIE MORALES, anchor: Wait?

    ANN CURRY, co-host: This is news to me.

    LAUER: On my special 10th edition of WHERE IN THE WORLD IS MATT LAUER?

    ROKER: Oh, whoa! Suckered!

    MORALES: Oh, you got us! What?

    CURRY: Oh! Gosh!

    LAUER: Special 10th edition . Take a look. One of the most amazing locations you will ever see. It all began in the shadow of the Great Pyramid . It was 1998 , Bill Clinton was the country's 42nd president. Gas cost a little over a dollar, and Google was brand new, still just a noun. And now, more than 10 years later, WHERE IN THE WORLD has taken us to 46 amazing places, over a quarter of a million miles, in the air for more than 500 hours, creating memories for a lifetime. We visited some of the most beautiful and exotic places all around the globe. And so we wonder, is there really anywhere left we can go? So the answer is yes. We have found five new and exciting locations. It all kicks off on Monday, November 7th , which should be a lot of fun. If you want some details and highlights from our past nine trips and also some fun games that have nothing to do with WHERE IN THE WORLD , you can head to today.com/whereintheworld.

    MORALES: And you can still buy the DVDs , right?

    CURRY: Thinking back, though, are your tips going to get any easier?

    LAUER: The clues?

    CURRY: Yes.

    LAUER: No. No.

    MORALES: They're going to get harder.

    LAUER: Well, you know, sometimes you complain they are just plain miserable. I'm already working on clues for this year.

    MORALES: Oh, OK.

    LAUER: So no complaining.

    ROKER: No.

    LAUER: Could we keep the whining to a minimum this year?

    CURRY: You know what, step it up. Don't expect too much.

    ROKER: Are we going to get to see the Matterhorn ?
