Sorry, Prince Harry, Savannah’s Off the Market

NBC “TODAY” Show host Savannah Guthrie was all smiles this morning as she revealed her engagement to political consultant Mike Feldman, setting off a flurry of reaction in Washington and beyond.

Guthrie flashed her diamond ring on air. Weatherman Al Roker tweeted that actor Bradley Cooper brought Savannah flowers for the occasion. NBC “MTP” Executive Producer Betsy Fischer remarked, “Two great people — Savannah and Mike — awesome news!” CNN’s Jessica Yellin added, “Wowza. Check out that pic! Congrats guys!” And Co-host Willie Geist assumes his invitation is in the mail: “Two of the greats. Spoiler alert guys: I already grabbed the shower caddy off your registry.” CNN’s Jake Tapper wrote, “Congrats to Savannah Guthrie and Mike Feldman!!!! Xoxo.” NBC Washington’s Angie Goff wrote, “Congrats Savannah! You’ll make a beautiful bride.” And Mediaite founder and ABC Legal Analyst Dan Abrams added his congratulatory note, saying, “Two people I’ve really liked and respected for a long time.”

Savannah had a pointed message for Prince Harry… “Tell him I’m no longer available.”

Even US Weekly splashed it up on their site this morning.

NBC TODAY’s Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie Offer Warm and Pointless Thanksgiving Thoughts

Sometimes hosts of the upcoming Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade shouldn’t be interviewed before, after or during the fact. What are NBC’s Savannah Guthrie and Al Roker grateful for and what are their Thanksgiving traditions? Who cares? Even they don’t know or seem to care, but they manage to pull a variety of things out of their brains asses for the clip.

What we learned:

Savannah: She’s grateful for her new fam at NBC and for the fact that she won’t have to cook much at Thanksgiving. She’s good at cleaning up.

Al: He’s thankful that the Hurricane Sandy victims are getting help. His advice for Savannah is to appreciate the three-hour parade because it’ll be over in a flash.

The only entertaining portion of this video comes when Al discusses how he’ll be spending Thanksgiving with his wife’s family in Georgia.

Savannah Guthrie Thwacks Starbucks

What is with journalists and their coffee? Last year in April Savannah Guthrie‘s former TV co-host Chuck Todd complained about poor service at an airport Starbucks. “Is it Starbucks company policy that their airport locations have to run inefficiently?” he seethed on Twitter. Now Savannah, who works for “The Today Show,” also takes a whack at Starbucks showing just how hard it is to get her morning coffee. What the hell, Starbucks? Don’t you know who she is? Don’t you know this doesn’t look good for you?

So much for MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” being “brewed by Starbucks.” Doesn’t mean all NBC employees are going to get their coffee in an expedient fashion.
