Savannah Guthrie

Officially Named

'Today' Co-Anchor

breaking news

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."

That's it for this former Today Show enthusiast. It will be GMA for me from now on. Nothing has been the same for me since Katie left. I could not bear Meredith, but liked Ann and thought she would fit in well. Yes, she gets caught up in her words sometimes, but she's such a sincere lady, I hate that she is gone, and I will NEVER watch the Today Show again, I've had my fill of Matt and Al too, time for a change. I hope NBC realizes how stupid they are.
