Jenna Bush Hager to Replace Kathie Lee Gifford as Hoda Kotb's 'Today' Show Co-Anchor

A few months ago, Kathie Lee Gifford announced that she would be stepping away from the fourth hour of the Today show as a longtime co-host with Hoda Kotb.

NBC has announced that Jenna Bush Hager will take over for Kathie Lee and co-host the fourth hour with Hoda.

“It feels humbling and I can’t believe it,” Jenna said. “My dad [former President George W. Bush] just wrote me three words, which made me weep. He said, ‘Very proud dad.’ Which I’m like, what is there to be proud about? I’m just drinking wine in the morning!”

Jenna then offered some words for Kathie Lee, saying, “You have been such a role model and so generous with your time. … You are beloved here in so many ways and if I can use some of your grace and have a half of what you’ve done, my life will be a very happy one.”

She then added, “@klgandhoda and whoever is in charge of this account.. the two women you work for deserve to be represented a bit more dignified.”
