Megyn Kelly Accidentally Snubs Hoda Kotb During 'Today Show' Debut (Video)

Megyn Kelly made her first appearance as an NBC news anchor on The Today Show on Thursday (June 1), but she made a small error while saying hello to the hosts!

The 46-year-old former Fox News anchor was appearing live from St. Petersburg to tease her upcoming interview with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, and Hoda Kotb were sitting at the anchor desk in New York City while welcoming Megyn to the show for the first time as a team member.

“Hey guys, it’s great to be with you, Matt and Savannah,” she said. When she realized her name wasn’t said, Hoda put her hands into the air in a “what about me?” way!

It’s likely that Megyn didn’t know Hoda was at the desk as people who appear live via satellite usually are just given an audio feed, not a video feed.

Hoda Kotb Returns to 'Today' After Maternity Leave

Hoda Kotb is back at work after two months of maternity leave and she is gushing over her baby girl Haley Joy!

Hoda said that she was a “mess” and nervous to be back on the air. “I’m scared to be sitting here. I’m a little afraid that I might explode into tears,” she said.

In a pre-taped segment, Hoda opened up about being a new mom.

“You think that by a certain stage in your life, I’ve had every experience I’m going to have,’and then all of a sudden she shows up,” she said. “I felt like, in my life, I’ve had joy beyond what I could imagine, but this is beyond like a dream. Like you have your dreams, and then this.”

“I’ve never believed at love at first sight until now,” Hoda added.
