| Filed under: TV News

Savannah Guthrie Today Official

Well, it’s official!

While we mentioned before that Savannah Guthrie would be replacing Ann Curry as co-anchor on the Today show, NBC has finally made their announcement!

Guthrie will take the seat Ann had occupied, alongside Matt Lauer, Al Roker and Natalie Morales, and will officially be making her debut on July 9.

In a statement, NBC News President Steve Capus said:

“In just a few short years Savannah, has become a standout member of the news division as well as the ultimate team player. She’s anchored for Brian on NBC Nightly News moderated for David on Meet the Press, co-hosted the 9 a.m. hour of Today, reported for Rock Center and Dateline and provided legal insights in our Supreme Court Special Reports – and that was all within the last week!

She's got an undeniable range, and she’s earned the trust of the news community, her colleagues and our viewers alike. I couldn’t be happier for Savannah and the entire Today team.”

Quite some impressive credits there, Savannah!

Today’s Executive Producer, Jim Bell added:

“I’m thrilled to welcome Savannah as our newest co-anchor, and along with Matt, Al and Natalie, we’ve got the best morning team in the business.”

Savannah has been with Today since 2011, co-hosting the third hour of the show and serving as its chief legal correspondent, a role in which she’ll also continue.

Congratz! We hope she brings in the ratings NBC was looking for, though Ann is gonna be hard to replace!

    Good luck….I won't be watching. This show lost its luster several years ago….and hasn't captured my attention since. And shame on them for the Ann-hyjinx. Terrible.

    I like Savannah but she is not the problem. How many times do us viewers have to tell you nbc that the issue is Matt. You aint going to get anything fixed until you dump Matt. While you are at it, get rid of Al, Clean the place out like CBS did and start fresh. Quit putting bandaids on the issue!!!!

    Read on another site that she was already on Today this morning. Not that interested as I have not watched this show in a long time. GMA is better if you like that kind of show.
