Savannah Guthrie

Officially Named

'Today' Co-Anchor

0629_savannah_guthrieIt's official -- NBC just announced Savannah Guthrie is the new co-anchor of "Today."

As TMZ first reported, Savannah was a lock to replace Ann Curry, who had fallen out of favor with both NBC brass and Matt Lauer after co-hosting the show for just one year.

Curry made her tearful farewell Thursday -- and it was Guthrie who took Curry's seat this morning ... although no on-air announcement was made.

"Today" executive producer Jim Bell just released a statement announcing Savannah's new position -- saying, Guthrie "has a one-of-a-kind combination of sharp wit and approachability, and our viewers value her journalistic skills and legal background just as much as her humor and charm."

Bell added, "She can effortlessly go from interviewing the Secretary of State to jumping Olympic-sized hurdles on the plaza."

Remember Ann only makes 10 million a year. She and Matt have disgusting salaries. I agree....Matt isn't with 10% of what he paid. But come on...Ann wasn't worth 10 million. THis is totally out of control.

The Today Show ratings are going to go lower. My family, friends and I are going to stop watching the show. It was the wrong move to do.

First off, I think Matt Lauer is a pompous ass. I have never liked him. Second of all, this girl needs some lip injections fast to cover her horrible teeth.

She sort of looks like an eagle hawk...very sharp nose/beak and no lips.

Buh-bye Today Show, I cannot stand her and if NBC thinks this is an improvement, then they deserve to drop to 3rd place.

Matt Lauer makes 20 million and Ann Curry gets 10 million for leaving? Well now we know which company is employing all those fired bank executives.
Fortunately NBC kept Kathy Lee and Hoda out of that mess.

Savannah is not the answer. They need someone who is more high profile and appealing to audiences. They need to revamp that entire show - it is becoming very old and tired.

Hopefully the person who decided to put Ann Curry in that position a year ago was also fired. She might be a nice person, but she was never as appealing as a Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, etc. That decision was doomed from the start. With this and the Jay Leno/Conan O'Brien fiasco, some decision-makers at NBC should also be fired.
