After she was given Matt Lauer’s former gig on Today, Hoda Kotb was over the moon with happiness as she felt like her dreams had come true. That being said, we have learned that she is still celebrating!
As fans of the TV show probably already know, Hoda is now Savannah Guthrie’s permanent co-host on the first two hours following Matt Lauer’s shameful firing.
It has been a week since she took over the prestigious role and the team decided to pay tribute to the woman by sharing a really sweet video which showcased the decades-long-career she spent in the news.
Guthrie explained what it felt like to have Hoda by her side on the show, saying ‘It is just perfection and feels so good.’
Al Roker seemed to agree, telling Hoda: ‘I am so thrilled you are here with us every day, every morning.’
Carson Daly also gushed: ‘She makes it feel like you are not even doing your job. It is so much fun.’
It is safe to say that Hoda Kotb was deeply touched by the gesture.
‘I can’t believe this is happening. I know it’s a cliche, but it’s a dream come true!’
‘We are celebrating @HodaKotb’s first week as co-anchor of TODAY!’ the official Today account tweeted.
Hoda explained that she enjoys working alongside Guthrie too, saying that they really click, and are like ‘two peas in a pod!’
The praising did not stop there, however – Guthrie went on to state that ‘Hoda has a gift of connecting with people but also sharing the joy. She makes someone’s dream come true at the very moment they need it most.’
