Savannah Guthrie Takes Ann Curry’s Seat on ‘Today’

ALTOn Thursday, America watched as an emotional Ann Curry stepped down from her Today show post as co-host, complete with tears running down her cheeks. (“I’m sorry I couldn’t carry the ball across the finish line,” the newswoman said during her farewell, which aired shortly after NBC execs teased Curry’s hosting style in The New York Times.) And just 24 hours later, the media world was astir, speculating that Curry’s rumored replacement Savannah Guthrie would be named Friday as the new Today co-host.

While an announcement still has yet to be made, Guthrie has stepped up her coverage details as of Friday. She is even sitting in Curry’s old co-host chair.
The anticipation and rumors have been building for days now that Guthrie has the gig, but until NBC decides to officially name her as Curry’s successor, all we can do is sit, wait, and watch.

Anne Curry

News Editor Lindsey DiMattina started her career writing for a series of interior design magazines in South Florida, but moved to NYC on a whim. She dabbled in fashion PR, then took a job doing celebrity reporting. For three years, she broke news about Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey, Snooki, Bachelor/Bachelorette winners, Teen Moms, and many more. In her spare time, you can find her rocking out to Sugarland or Lil Jon and walking her dog Bene Hendrix (named after the Jimi Hendrix). She never misses an episode of “The Borgias,” “Boardwalk Empire,” or “Game of Thrones."
