Today show viewers are giving co-anchor Savannah Guthrie a warm welcome back after she returned to Studio 1A alongside Hoda Kotb for the first time in weeks. Guthrie had been hosting the NBC morning show from home amid a coronavirus self-quarantine, though she made her grand return to the studio on Tuesday.
Sitting six feet apart per social distancing recommendations, Guthrie and Kotb expressed their excitement over her return, with Kotb stating that having her co-anchor back in studio things felt a little more normal. In recent weeks, Kotb had been the only anchor recording live from Studio 1A, where there was also no audience, as several co-hosts self-quarantined after a staffer tested positive for coronavirus.
Filming Tuesday’s segment with updates about the coronavirus pandemic, it was also announced that Guthrie and Kotb will be anchoring a live primetime special about the coronavirus pandemic at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
