Carson Daly says its ''a dream come true'' to join NBC's 'Today Show'.

The 'Last Call' late night talk show host - who also presents 'The Voice' on NBC - will gain a larger presence on the US network's popular morning television show when he fronts 'The Orange Room', a brand new hub for the show's digital platforms which will be unveiled on Monday (16.09.13).

Carson told ''When I got the call about being permanently on Today and launching the Orange Room, it was like a dream come true.

''You know that scene in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, where Charlie peels back the wrapper and finds the golden ticket? I felt like I got the golden ticket.''

The 40-year-old star has seen a fruitful career since his five-year stint as host of MTV's Total Request Live, and he claims his new job meant all his hard work had ''paid off''.

Carson continued: ''Everything I've done in my career up until this point has trained me for Today - the interviews, the live TV, the live radio - it all gets paid off.

''I was playing in the minor leagues and now I've just been called up to the big leagues. It's amazing that I get to be a small part of the new era and generation of 'Today' - not just to be here, but to be here to help build the future of 'Today' and serve as the bridge between viewers and the show.''

Carson will continue as an executive producer on his late night show 'Last Call', with producers saying: ''Plans for a transition will be announced at a later date.''

Meanwhile, fans will have unprecedented access to the 'Today Show' via the new 'Orange Room' which will also host social media hangouts, extended live-stream interviews with guests, and analysis of real-time social conversations from around the Web.
