Hoda Kotb, who has filled in on NBC’s Today show since Matt Lauer was fired in November, has now officially replaced him.
The news means Kotb will continue to host alongside Savannah Guthrie in the 7am to 9am slot.
Kotb has also hosted the 10am hour of Today with Kathie Lee Gifford since 2008, which she will continue to do.
“This has to be the most popular decision NBC News has ever made,” Guthrie said on Tuesday’s show.
And Kotb responded: “There’s no one I’d rather be sitting next to in 2018 than you.”
Al Roker and Carson Daly are the other two members of the 7am to 9am Today show.
