A network divided!

As tensions reportedly rise between Today anchors Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie, staffers at the NBC daytime talk series have allegedly started taking sides, seemingly standing with the Kathie Lee & Hoda alum.

Described as being “so warm and friendly” per one unnamed insider, the 57-year-old journalist is allegedly the team’s “absolute favorite,” thanks in part to her reportedly kind demeanor.

"I just read something that states Savannah and Hoda aren’t getting along,” wrote one fan. “I just want to say that this show would not be this good without Hoda..."

“I'm so sick of Savannah Guthrie being rude, loud, always interrupting and talking over everyone,” added another. “Love everyone on the show, but she needs to GO!"
