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."

NBC has a history of dropping female anchors when they start to age, and making excuses for doing so. It amazes me that so many people still tune in to their channels to get the "news"., and don't realize what NBC is about. Shame on you, NBC,, and shame on the people who still support you.
