Today’s Savannah Guthrie abruptly leaves show early- and Sheinelle Jones shares co-host’s new medical diagnosis

Today’s Savannah Guthrie abruptly leaves show early- and Sheinelle Jones shares co-host’s new medical diagnosis

SAVANNAH Guthrie has abruptly left the Today Show on Tuesday morning.

She hosted for the first half hour, but then had to leave due to her new medical diagnosis.

Sheinelle Jones sat with Savannah at the desk, as Hoda Kotb remains out.

When the host left, Al Roker stepped in at the desk for a short time.

Fans were left confused, but then Sheinelle explained what happened with Savannah.

She stood next to Al and Carson Daly in front of Dierks Bentley‘s instruments, who played on the show that day, and let viewers know that Savannah has COVID-19.

“It has been an interesting morning for us. As we said, Savannah left early,” Sheinelle said.

“She wasn’t feeling great, so she took a COVID test. It came back positive. So, of course, as soon as we found out, she rushed home to rest up.”

She ended by blowing a kiss and said: “So, Savannah, we love you. Wishing you a speedy recovery.”

Savannah will probably be out for the rest of the week, or until her test comes back negative.

This makes both of the lead anchors out at the same time.


This is not the first time Savannah has battled the Corona Virus.

Back in May 2022, she called into the show when she tested positive for a second time.

The then 50-year-old posted a picture of the test just a few days before with a caption that read in part, “So this happened – again! Covid +, air filter on “turbo” and it will be an isolating Mother’s Day for this mama!!!…Thankful to be vaccinated!”

That Monday, Hoda and her colleagues checked in on a make-up free Savannah to see how she was feeling via videoconference.

She said she felt “great and just had a little cold”, adding she was “lucky,” before joking, “honestly, having five days to myself, no kids, no husband, can you imagine?”

According to Hello! she shared several posts on Instagram on Mother’s Day morning, where she woke up alone to a bunch of surprise flowers delivered outside her bedroom door.

“Part tragedy, part fantasy” she wrote alongside two separate photos – revealing that the positive aspect of the situation was that she got to sleep in.

Savannah spent the morning Facetiming her children, Vale, 7 and Charles, 5, from the other side of the house, and posting photos from their chat on social media, according to the magazine.

She told her Today colleagues she also spent the time playing Wordle, reading a book her friend had sent her, watched tv and did some cleaning and organizing.

Fans, both regular and famous, were quick to offer sympathy and get well wishes on her Instagram after she shared the positive result.


The last time Savannah left in the middle of the show was on February 7, leaving fans baffled again.

Co-host Hoda informed viewers of where she went, as fan-favorite hosts filled in for her.

Savannah, 51, and Hoda, 58, 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.

Craig and Hoda moved on to talk about the Super Bowl and Rihanna‘s half-time performance.

Fan-favorite Sheinelle Jones joined the two hosts as Hoda brought up Savannah again.

“Sheinelle Jones joins us at the table. Savannah is heading to the airport. She is going to Washington, DC for tonight’s State of the Union Address,” Hoda revealed.

“Busy day,” Sheinelle said.

Sheinelle and Craig had double duty that day, as they also hosted the third hour of Today.
