Savannah Clark Guthrie (born December 27, 1971) is an Australian-born American broadcast journalist and attorney. She is a main co-anchor of the NBC News morning show Today, a position she has held since July 2012.
Guthrie joined NBC News in September 2007 as a legal analyst and correspondent, regularly reporting on trials throughout the country. After serving as a White House correspondent between 2008 and 2011 and as co-anchor of the MSNBC program The Daily Rundown in 2010 and 2011, Guthrie was announced as the co-host of Today's third hour alongside Natalie Morales and Al Roker. In that role, she substituted as news anchor and main co-host and appeared as the chief legal analyst across all NBC platforms. Guthrie ceased to be the third-hour co-host and chief legal analyst in 2012 when she replaced Ann Curry as co-anchor of Today.
History in the Parade
After gaining her spot as one of the main anchors on Today, starting on July 9th, 2012, Guthrie first hosted the NBC Parade telecast later that November, in addition to gaining the role as the host for the annual Rockefeller Centre Tree Lighting. After Matt Lauer was fired mere days after the 2017 Parade, Guthrie retained her hosting position, and it was later confirmed that Hoda Kotb would take Lauer's place the following year in 2018.
- When Guthrie was asked about her all-time favorite balloon in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, she claimed that Snoopy was her all-time favorite and that she believes that Snoopy should be in the Parade forever. She also added that the Snoopy balloon was one of the only Parade units that she would actively search for.
