After 11 years as host, Meredith Vieira is leaving the U.S. syndicated version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire, TVGuide.com has confirmed.

Vieira opted not to renew her contract, which is in its final year, because she plans to launch her own YouTube channel to feature people's life stories, a source close to Vieira told The Associated Press.
