There’s Been Many ‘Today’ Hosts Through the Years — Take a Look Back!


It’s hard to believe Today first premiered back in 1952! Over the past 65 years, there have been a plethora of hosts on the show, including Barbara Walters, Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, and more!

Ever since Matt’s abrupt firing in late November, fans have been curious to know more about the history of the show. And with newcomers like Megyn Kelly who have reportedly been bringing ratings down, there’s no better time than now to look back at what used to be.

Since Matt left, many are curious as to who will replace his seat next to Savannah Guthrie. As previously reported, she and Hoda Kotb have been closer than ever since his firing!

“Savannah and Hoda never thought that they would be this close, but they’ve actually bonded over Matt’s betrayal and departure,” an NBC insider told Life & Style. “They’re still hurt, reeling over the details of Matt’s disgusting behavior. He had to go, and now Savannah and Hoda are better friends because of it — and their show is doing better than it was before. Privately, they’re proud of the success.”

“They’ve not only held things together since Matt’s firing but done great work together,” an insider added. “They’ve always loved each other, but Savannah and Hoda are spending more time talking when the cameras aren’t rolling than they ever have. Matt’s downfall has forged a deeper friendship between the two.” We guess we’ll have to wait and see!
