HomeTagsComings & GoingsDid Hoda Turn Down The View to Stick it Out on Today’s Fourth Hour? Luke Kerr November 13, 2013 Comings & Goings, Talk Shows, The Today Show, The View, Today 1 Comment Don't expect Hoda Kotb to abandon Kathie Lee Gifford during the fourth hour of Today. According to Capital New York, Kotb has signed a new contract with NBC that will keep her on Today and allow her to contribute to other NBC news programming. Kotb was hotly pursued by ABC earlier this year, with the network promising her a high-profile gig on daytime talk stalwart “The View,” as well as a role with ABC News. While we hear the ABC offer was “compelling,” Kotb’s current home apparently offered the better deal. Photo by PR Photos One Response blake3b November 15, 2013 Good! Hoda doesn’t need to be on that sinking ship! I like watching her and Kathie Lee on Today. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
