Savannah showed off her wardrobe malfunction while presenting Today’s Third Hour on Wednesday with Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones, Tom Llamas and Jacob Soboroff.
She held up her shoe to show her co-hosts as they stood in the New York Plaza.
She protested, “that has not happened in the 12 years I’ve been here,” as Sheinelle groaned in disgust.
Savannah insisted it wasn’t her gum, asking: “Who is chewing green gum?”
Tom asked jokingly, “Who’s got spearmint breath?” as Savannah demanded to know: “Who’s the culprit?”
The presenter seemed to see the funny side, however, as she quipped: “You know what, it’s New York City, you could step in a lot worse.”
Earlier this week, Savannah made headlines again when she jokingly encouraged her co-hosts to join her on a mass walkout from the studio.
Savannah sat with Tom and Sheinelle as they listened to information about the perks of a four-day week.
After she heard that nine out of 10 companies who trialed the system in the UK planned to keep the shorter schedule, Savannah couldn’t hide her excitement.
The journalist cried out: “Why do we even need to do research?!”
Sheinelle piped in: “This study just needs to jump the pond.”
Savannah quickly added: “Yeah, exactly, let’s just go.”
Tom then joked: “I’m actually funding the three-day work week.”
A four-day work week would suit busy Savannah, who recently joined a Today broadcast remotely after leaving the New York office.
Earlier this month, the star ditched the news desk about halfway through a weekday morning show.
Savannah and Hoda Kotb started the show off behind the desk, reporting on the morning’s news.
Craig Melvin joined them about 15 minutes earlier than he normally does.
Less than an hour into the show, Savannah disappeared from the desk leaving just Craig and Hoda.
Following a commercial break, Hoda explained her co-host’s absence.
“Welcome back everybody. Savannah had to leave a little early. She’s got Washington’s State of the Union. She’ll be covering that for Craig,” she shared.
