|Hora Kotb is the permanent host for Today. She will continue her fourth hour show with Kathie Lee Gifford for now.|
NBC News announced that Hoda Kotb will be the permanent host for the Today show.
She will join Savannah Guthrie as the host of America's number one morning show.
Kotb for the time being will continue 10 am hour with Kathy Lee Gifford. They will still be sipping wine and talking the gossip. Their show follows Megyn Kelly Today.
The decision to not have a divisive figure like Kelly is a relief to Guthrie.
Guthrie feared Kelly was going to replace her after she took off for maturity leave.
The announcement came on Tuesday. This begins a new era scarred by the cannon firing of longtime host Matt Lauer.
Lauer was fired out the cannon after numerous women said he sexually harassed them during his 20 years at NBC.
Lauer was a dick during the Ann Curry fiasco. He was responsible for her ouster and it led to GMA picking up on ratings.
CBS This Morning also faced its own scandal. The cannon fire of Charlie Rose leaves the show in the hands of Gayle King and Norah O'Donnell.
The two will have rotating guest hosts and CBS Evening News host Jeff Glor cover until the position is filled.
Alex Wagner and Anthony Mason are frontrunners for the third chair.
Rose was fired out the cannon at CBS and PBS after he faced numerous allegations of sexual harassment and rape.
Good news people, former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson will join the board of Miss America. She was appointed after the former CEO and top brass talked smack about former contestants.
