Hoda Kotb Changes Twitter Status to 'Today' Co-Anchor

Hoda Kotb

The morning news show announced Kotb's new role on Tuesday morning.

Kotb is replacing Matt Lauer who has been fired in November from NBC due to sexual misconduct allegations, according to New York Times.

Matt was reportedly making $25 million a year with his Today contract, which was renewed in 2016. "You know, Matt is our good friend and continues to be, and I think for both of us, we've just been trying to navigate this time and honor our love and friendship with Matt, but also understand and try to learn more about these circumstances", she said.

According to an insider, the man's salary was a reflection of his long time as a co-host on the show, which was 25 years before his firing. Over time, that makes them more valuable and more hard to let go. "But the figures underline the huge wage disparity at NBC News", the source said.

The glaring discrepancy between Lauer and Kotb's salaries raises questions about what kind of people are valued at NBC.

Kotb, a 53-year-old Egyptian-American, is an award-winning journalist who joined NBC in 1998 as a correspondent and went on to become a host of a later slot on the channel's morning program.

The fight began with 7:50 remaining in the third quarter of the Heat's 90-89 victory over the Raptors on Tuesday night in Toronto. With four players out due to injury the Heat with an eight-man rotation and seven of those players scored 11 points or more.

"Today" fans fell in love with Kotb after the show documented her battle with breast cancer nearly a decade ago.

The vibrant Hoda Kotb, co-host of the later morning "Today" show with Kathie Lee Gifford is now the co-anchor of the official "Today" show. I say measly, though, because a.no-good Megyn Kelly (whose hour on the "Today" show is a garbage fire) makes $20 million and b. She joined the "Today Show" in 2008 as a co-host alongside Kathy Lee Gifford for its fourth hour. "I misunderstood. Have a great day", he wrote.

Kotb became interim co-anchor of the "Today" show after Matt Lauer was terminated on November 28, 2017.

"There's no one I'd rather be sitting next to in 2018 than you", Kotb responded to Guthrie.

A representative for the "Today Show" declined to comment to Page Six on anchor contracts.

In addition to Today, she has also served as co-host of NBC's coverage of the Tournament of Roses Parade and the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting. "He said some nice words", she said on air. Though Hoda was just given the coveted co-anchor job on Tuesday, Jan. 2, she's been with the network for almost 10 years since joining in 2008.
