on Wednesday, announcing that the 52-year-old co-host would be returning to the program after adopting daughter Haley Joy
and going on maternity leave for two months. While Kotb is perhaps best known for co-hosting the final hour of Today
with Kathie Lee Gifford, the promo teased that viewers would be seeing "more of Hoda every morning with Matt [Lauer] and Savannah [Guthrie]," who are the main anchors on the first two hours of the show. Jenna Bush Hager has been filling in for Kotb on the fourth hour with Gifford.
