Hoda Kotb is replacing Matt Lauer as the co-anchor on NBC's "Today" it was announced Tuesday.
"We are kicking off the year right because Hoda is officially the co-anchor of 'Today,'" Guthrie said as Kotb smiled.
"This has to be the most popular decision NBC News has ever made," Guthrie continued.
Weatherman Al Roker congratulated Kotb on Twitter alongside a selfie he took on the set of "Today" featuring himself, Kotb and Guthrie.
Kotb is the replacement for Lauer who was fired from NBC in November due to sexual misconduct allegations.
