Hoda Kotb Named New Co-Host of ‘The Today Show’

Hoda Kotb is officially the new co-host of ‘The Today Show.’

The announcement was made by her new partner-in-crime, Savannah Guthrie earlier today on the show.

In announcing Kotb’s appointment on “Today,” Guthrie, 46, told viewers: “This has to be the most popular decision that NBC News has ever made.”

“I am pinching myself,” said a beaming Kotb. “I think we should send some medics to Alexandria, Virginia, where my mom has likely fainted after hearing the open of that show.”

Kotb also plans to still co-host the fourth hour of the show with Kathie Lee Gifford, which she has been doing since 2008.

Kotb’s pairing with Guthrie will be the first time since 2009, that two women co-anchors will lead a national broadcast. The first time was when Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts co-anchored ABC’s “Good Morning America” from 2006 to 2009.
