As first reported by NYT, NBC’s White House correspondent Savannah Guthrie will become a new co-host for the third hour of the “Today” show. NBC announced the news late this morning. With Natalie Morales moving into Ann Curry‘s slot and curry moving into the space being left by a departing Meredith Vieira, there was room for Guthrie to jump in.
Guthrie gushed on Twitter this morning, “Thank you for all the well wishes on Twitter! And congrats to @AnnCurry @NMoralesNBC + biggest of hugs to @meredithvieira.”
For now, we hear Guthrie’s Daily Rundown co-host Chuck Todd will likely do the show solo.
Congrats to Guthrie!
