NEW GIRL

Savannah Guthrie Hosts ‘Today’

That was quick. Just 11 days after Ann Curry’s tearful goodbye to Today viewers, veteran reporter Savannah Guthrie was introduced as the show’s new co-host Monday. “It truly is a new day around here ... I’m pleased to be sharing this new day with Savannah Guthrie, who after several years of playing a great role on this program, takes a step forward this morning and joins us as co-anchor of Today,” co-host Matt Lauer told viewers. “You bring a great attitude and what we like to call a weird sense of humor to this program, so we’re all very happy to have you.” Guthrie responded by thanking Lauer and joking, “It’s 7:02 and he’s already calling me weird!”
