Today’s Savannah Guthrie reveals Hoda Kotb’s exciting new project with first-look photo of host in stunning yellow dress

TODAY star Savannah Guthrie has revealed her co-star Hoda Kotb’s exciting new project on the morning show.

During Tuesday’s episode of Today, Savannah, 51, shared that Hoda, 58, made the front cover of the lifestyle magazine Southern Living.

Savannah “exclusively” revealed Hoda’s Southern Living cover on-air, giving fans a first look at the NBC personality’s magazine feature.

“This is an exclusive look at Southern Living’s annual South’s Best Awards issue,” she explained.

Savannah reported the news as she, Hoda, Carson Daly, 49, and Dylan Dreyer, 41, hosted outside of the studio in front of a live audience.

Hoda divulged she had to go to New Orleans “to shoot” for the cover, admitting that her time there “was really fun,” especially since her “bestie” was with her.

The April issue of Southern Living is on newsstands Friday, March 17, and the 2023 South’s Best Awards are out now on SouthernLiving.com.

The vibrant cover of the South’s Best Awards issue showed Hoda in a mostly yellow fit & flare dress.

Though the yellow floral pattern on the dress was bright yellow, the fabric that the flowers were atop was white.

Additionally, towards the bottom of the co-anchor’s dress, the fabric, which appeared to be silk transparent chiffon, was an off-white color.

Hoda finished her outfit off with golden ankle-strapped heels, bracelets, and earrings.


The TV star’s newest project revelation came after her hiatus from the morning show, which she returned from on Monday.

The journalist explained the reason for her recent absence while choking back tears Monday morning on-air.

She told viewers: “My youngest daughter Hope was in the ICU for a few days and in the hospital for a little more than a week and I’m so grateful she’s home.”

“She is back home and I’ve been waiting for that day to come and we are watching her closely.”

“I realize when your child is ill, the amount of gratitude you can have for people for who helped you out…” Hoda continued.

“I’m grateful for the doctors at Weill Cornell who are amazing and the nurses and I’m grateful to my family and friends like you who were there every single day.”


This isn’t the first time an anchor has referenced Hoda’s swift and unexplained disappearance from the show.

The star had been absent from the line-up for about two weeks, with many fans wondering why, and when she planned to return.

On Wednesday’s show, Craig Melvin, 43, briefly explained Hoda’s absence: “Many of you have been asking about Hoda. Hoda is okay. She has a family health matter she’s been dealing with.”

At the time he did not offer additional details regarding his co-host’s whereabouts or future plans.

Hours later, photos captured Hoda looking solemn while picking up her six-year-old daughter, Haley Joy, from school.

In the absence of an explanation, fans created theories of their own.
