You can’t name a better pair than Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb. For Forbes‘ second annual “50 Over 50” list, Guthrie made sure her Today co-anchor was honored. Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the pair’s iconic friendship.
Hoda Kotb Makes ’50 Over 50′ List
ForbesIt was recently published “50 Over 50”This list was curated using the assistance of Morning Joe star Mika Brzezinski. The complete list is meant to honor notable women who didn’t find their greatest success until after turning 50. Dolly Parton and Kris Jenner are just a few of the names on the list. They all live full lives at well beyond 50. Brzezinski said that this was because the publication is a “publication”. Today Hoda is the co-host “takes the message of this important initiative to a whole new level.”

Kotb was named co-anchor TodayShe was 53 when she adopted her daughters. Ever since then, Kotb’s star has only risen. Kotb not only shows that women will be okay after turning 50—she’s proven that you can absolutely thrive after crossing that threshold. She is an example of not only the possibility for professional success later on in life but also deep personal fulfillment.
Of course, the ever-humble Hoda Kotb didn’t nominate herself. It was her! Today Savannah Guthrie, co-anchor, made sure that her name was included in the running. She shared her story Forbes What her co-worker and best friend are like “profoundly inspiring to women everywhere.”
Savannah Guthrie Gushes Over Hoda Kotb
Funny enough, Brzezinski wanted both Guthrie, and Kotb to be on the list. However, Guthrie turned 50 just a few days ago, making this honor a little too late for her. However, that didn’t stop Guthrie from making sure Kotb got the recognition.
“Hoda is the living, breathing demonstration that you can have it all, and you can have it on your own terms,” Guthrie told Forbes. “She represents to me what a modern woman is. She is strong. She is beautiful. She is kind. She is authentic. She is devoted to her family. She maintains and cultivates her friendships. And she is an incredible professional and a wonderful journalist.”
Guthrie made sure to listen to Brzezinski’s tribute about Kotb while she was on air. Guthrie starts to cry when she talks about her cohost in an emotional moment.
Guthrie and Kotb were the first female anchor pair at NBC in over 70 years. They are an amazing example of how women don’t have to be in competition with one another. Women can reach greater heights when they lift one another up.
