Per The U.S. Sun, Guthrie shared what the outlet called a “heartwarming” video of herself just a few days ago.

According to the outlet, what drives the TODAY Show hosts apart is Guthrie views herself “as a real news person.” Comparatively, many have labeled Kotb as the “lightweight.”

Recently, a TODAY Show source spoke out about what goes on behind the scenes of the morning talk show. Overall, they revealed that both women are jiving to be “top dog.” The source explained, “Savannah is the boss. After Matt Lauer was ousted, Savannah grabbed power, and she really wanted Willy Geist in Hoda’s role, but his ratings were just not up to par for the network.”

In the end, they stated that Kotb “outmaneuvered” Guthrie’s efforts and got the open spot on the TODAY Show.

Fans Are Calling For Both Hosts to be ‘Fired’ From the ‘TODAY Show’

Some TODAY Show fans are reveling in the rumors that have flown since Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie reportedly engaged in their feud. Meanwhile, others are calling for both talk show hosts to be fired.

Previous reports state the duo’s growing feud has become so intense that it’s actually begun affecting the social environment on the set of the TODAY Show. However, a recent on-air interaction between Kotb and Guthrie is what has fans calling for the cohosts’ termination.

During a cooking segment with cookbook author Elizabeth Heiskell, things became pretty uncomfortable. In it, Kotb repeatedly laughed throughout the interview while Guthrie insisted they keep moving on. Fans, after viewing the segment, became completely frustrated.

“They both need to be fired,” one fan, fed up with the feuding, insisted. “Not all of it is Savannah’s fault. Innocent [Hoda] showing her true colors too.”

Another insisted that “Niether one!” should stay on to host the TODAY Show.

More generally, fans have called out both talk show hosts on social media, with their feud growing more palpable.

“Not really sure what the issue is with Hoda [and] Savannah,” one TODAY Show fan said, “but you ladies are adults, not squabbling children. Get back to the normal Today family vibe or to GMA.”
