Hoda Kotb has been named Today show co-anchor following Matt Lauer’s firing over sexual harassment allegations. The promotion means that Kotb and Savannah Guthrie will co-host the famed morning show.“This has to be the most popular decision NBC News has ever made,” Guthrie said while celebrating the news on Tuesday’s “Today.”“There’s no one I’d rather be sitting next to in 2018 than you,” Kotb said.
