/// Savannah Guthrie Named Co-Anchor of NBC’s ‘Today’ Show
NBC on Friday made it official, announcing it has tapped Savannah Guthrie as the new co-anchor of the Today show. The confirmation comes just one day after Ann Curry made her tearful exit. Guthrie has hosted Today ’s 9 a.m. hour since June 2011 and is NBC News’ chief legal correspondent, a role she will continue to hold down after she takes her seat on the couch next to Matt Lauer. While Guthrie filled in for Curry on this morning’s show, no official word of her succession was made on the air.
