In addition to her hosting duties on the daily talk show, Savannah has hosted the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade coverage each year along with the annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony.

How Else Does Savannah Guthrie Make Money?

Outside of television, Savannah authored two New York Times bestselling children’s books: Princesses Wear Pants and Princesses Save the World. The attorney’s two children, Vale and Charles, whom she shares with her husband, Mike Feldman, served as the inspiration behind her books and their colorful characters. 

“Princess Penelope’s little brother, Philippe, has a starring role — and we’ve got some action and adventure in the final scene,” Savannah gushed in a February 2017 interview with People about her first book. “So yes, I think boys will like it, too. I know it will be a must-read for Charley!”

In February 2024, Savannah released her faith-based book, Mostly What God Does, a collection of personal essays reflecting on her connection to her Christian faith.

“I hope the book is appealing and compelling to anyone in any walk of life, because it’s just a gentle call to be loved. And once you feel that love, well, you’ll find that you can’t help but share it. It’s just contagious. And I think that’s really the thrust of the book and really what I was trying to say,” she told after the release.

She wrote the life-changing book with her two kids in mind, hoping they would have some huge takeaways from it.

“I wrote it for them, and it’s dedicated to them. It’s everything I would want to tell them,” she added. “If I died tomorrow — not to sound morose — it’s what I would want them to know about the God that loves them.”
