You've seen her face around NBC before, but now you'll be seeing it a lot more: Savannah Guthrie has officially been chosen to replace Ann Curry as Matt Lauer's "Today" show co-host, People reports.
"In just a few short years Savannah has become a standout member of the news division as well as the ultimate team player," NBC News president Steve Capus said in a statement on Friday. "She's got an undeniable range, and she's earned the trust of the news community, her colleagues and our viewers alike. I couldn't be happier for Savannah and the entire 'Today' team."
The 40-year-old Arizona native is no stranger to the morning show, of course. She's been co-anchoring the 9 a.m. hour since August 2011, and she will continue her role as NBC News chief legal correspondent.
