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!”
