    Savannah Clark Guthrie is an American journalist and attorney, working for NBC News.

    Guthrie joined NBC 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 The Today Show’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.

    After substituting for both Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry on Today, it was confirmed on May 9, 2012, that Guthrie would become co-host of the 9 a.m. hour, alongside Natalie Morales and Al Roker, and the show’s Chief Legal Editor. On June 29, 2012, Guthrie was named co-anchor of Today following Ann Curry’s departure.

    The move came after Vieira announced her departure from the show as co-host of the main program, and the subsequent promotions of Curry and Morales to main co-host and news anchor respectively. Guthrie departed The Daily Rundown for Today on June 8, 2012. She also became NBC News’ Chief Legal Analyst, making her first appearance in this role on May 25, 2011.

    Guthrie debuted as Today show co-anchor, alongside Matt Lauer, Morales and Roker, on Monday, July 9, 2012.
