“Her chemistry with Matt is fantastic and the early numbers show viewers have missed her, too…The person who has the most power is Matt. If he approves, Katie could be back!” the insider continued.

If the Today team does want Katie back, they’ll need to strategize so it doesn’t look like they’re kicking Savannah to the curb. “One idea is to ‘promote’ Savannah to reporting on NBC Nightly News or have her host Weekend Nightly News and give her a role on Meet the Press,” the insider explained.
