Pray: Hoda Kotb Takes a Break from TODAY Show Due to a ‘Family Health Matter’

By Movieguide® Contributor

Hoda Kotb has taken a break from the TODAY show for a while due to an ongoing “family health matter.”

Viewers have noticed that Kotb has been absent from the show since February 17, but her colleagues hadn’t explained her absence until recently. 

Savannah Guthrie, Craig Melvin and Sheinelle Jones have been covering for Kotb, but Guthrie also abruptly left the show during filming Tuesday morning.  

Melvin explained, “We mentioned that Savannah and Hoda are both off. Savannah, she’s home after a positive COVID test yesterday. We are wishing our friend a speedy recovery.”

“And as for Hoda, we know a lot of you have been wondering how she’s doing,” he continued. “We can tell you that Hoda’s okay. She’s got a family health matter that she’s been dealing with, so we look forward to seeing Hoda and Savannah back at the desk real, real soon.”

Despite her absence from the show, Kotb has been active on social media during this time, sharing a variety of inspirational posts.

 

Please keep Kotb and her family in your prayers as they navigate this time.
