Savannah Guthrie Takes Ann Curry's Hosting Seat On 'Today', But Is It Permanent?

OK! NEWS: WHO WILL REPLACE ANN CURRY ON THE TODAY SHOW?
But although Savannah is a familar face for Today viewers, it didn't appear that NBC was ready to make her Ann's permanent replacement. In fact, producers decided not to announce the hosts names at the top of the show — as per usual — and simply led in to Matt and Savannah saying good morning and discussing Friday's top news stories.
Everything ran smoothly — business as usual, with Savannah, who is usual a legal analyst and Today's 9 a.m. host, even taking on Ann's concert series duty and announcing today's musical guest, Maroon 5.
