Savannah Guthrie is about to make the move from MSNBC to NBC; from Washington DC to new York. Next Thursday she joins the “Today” show as co-anchor of the third hour. And during the third hour this morning, a simulcast of Guthrie’s MSNBC show “The Daily Rundown,” as she was welcomed by Ann Curry, Natalie Morales and Al Roker in New York. “You know this isn’t the first time I’ve been dumped by a girl,” joked Chuck Todd, who will solo anchor MSNBC’s 9am hour for now.
No one has been named to fill Guthrie’s role as White House correspondent, although LA correspondent Kristen Welker has been on the beat recently.
