Following reports of Ann Curry‘s departure from her role as co-host of The Today Show, Savannah Guthrie has been offered the position, according to The New York Times. No word yet on whether Guthrie has accepted.
Further details, via the NYT:
The offer to Ms. Guthrie was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday evening. The Reporter said that NBC is close to finishing a deal with Ms. Curry that would have her depart “Today” but stay at the news division in a “substantial” way.
Among the possible replacements for Ms. Curry, Ms. Guthrie is known to be the top pick of Jim Bell, the executive producer of “Today.” For the last year, Ms. Guthrie, 40, has been the co-host of the 9 a.m. hour of “Today” and the chief legal correspondent for the news division. Before then, she was a White House correspondent for the network and a co-anchor of a morning news program for MSNBC.
Guthrie’s name has been in the pool of potential replacements since the NBC shake-up was reported.
