As the Today show opened Tuesday Morning, NBC announced that Hoda Kotb would be joining Savannah Guthrie as it's co-anchor, replacing the disgraced Matt Lauer.

"This has to be the most popular decision NBC has ever made and I'm so thrilled," said Savannah. An overjoyed Hoda responded, "I'm pinching myself. I think we should send some medics to Alexandria, Virginia where my mom has likely fainted after hearing the opening of that show," as she smiled from ear-to-ear.



The decision to have Hoda permanently join the legendary morning show, comes after her five-week stint filling in for Laur, her former colleague, who was fired over sexual harassment allegations.

And, in case you were wondering, Hoda will still keep her co-hosting gig with Kathy Lee Gifford, during the fourth hour of Today. The two friends laughed and cried on-air, as they celebrated Hoda's promotion during their show.
