"Today" producers have recruited co-host Carson Daly to take over the 9 a.m. hour of the morning show in the wake of Billy Bush's suspension.

Bush was suspended from the show after a tape surfaced in which Bush and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump engaged in a lewd discussion about women.

"Today" executives said Bush is suspended "pending further review," and did not give a date for his return.

"Obviously I'm embarrassed and ashamed," Bush said in a statement.

"It's no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago -- I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I'm very sorry."

Daly is set to host the 9 a.m. programming block alongside Tamron Hall.
