All seems good at the Today Show!
“She and I have a lot in common, actually,” Savannah, 45, recently told The Hollywood Reporter. “We both went to law school and then ran screaming for our lives away from the law. We both came up in DC. But yeah, we’re excited to have her. I think she’s going to be great. We feel lucky. We feel like it was a great get.” So nice!

Earlier this year, Megyn announced she’d be leaving Fox News to join Today. After the news broke, reports surfaced that the TV personality was actually in talks to replace Savannah!
“There is a rumor on set that Megyn would eventually get the lead anchor role on Today, pushing Savannah out,” a source revealed to Page Six at the time.
According to a network insider, Savannah has also been kept in the dark about Megyn’s new Today role. “If you’re Savannah, you’re looking over your shoulder every minute,” the insider revealed. “The first time Savannah is out, Megyn will fill in, sitting next to Matt Lauer and NBC will go to great lengths to capitalize on it.” We can’t wait to see how this all plays out in the fall!
