Could Hoda Kotb Land at The View?

Her’s a bit of talk show intrigue. According to a report by Page Six, ABC is “very interested” in snagging Kathie Lee & Hoda host Hoda Kotb from NBC to replace Joy Behar

Another media insider explained of ABC’s potential move to poach Kotb, “Hoda addresses several of their needs. She has news experience, which is something ‘The View’ has not had since Meredith Vieira left. She also adds some diversity to the panel.”

An ABC rep pushed back on the report, telling Page Six, ““There’s absolutely zero truth to this whatsoever.”

Go Hoda! If she's smart, she'll save herself from that wreckage of a show and the loony Kathie Lee.

For once I agree with ABC PR. There is no way this is true. They don't need diversity, and with a show that put's Sherri Shepherd front in center 5 days a week, they certainly aren't worried about journalistic integrity. Plus, it's all about symphony these days, if they want a reporter they'll pull from GMA.

I agree that there is no truth to this, but she would be a good choice, except for two things: it would mean all of the co-hosts are over 40, and there wouldn't be someone with a conservative perspective on the show. If it's going to continue to be called The View, it has to address this lack of diverse opinions. Otherwise, they could called it One View.

I do like her but they need a conservative voice. I think she has it good at nbc. I don't trust any of the networks but abc is shaky.

I like Hoda, but "diversity"? THE VIEW already has the talented Whoopi and Sherri. If you want diversity how about getting a younger voice under 35? When the show first started Debbie and then Lisa represented 20 somethings. If they are striving for diversity they should get a younger voice.

Hoda on the View? Not a good fit if they are revamping the show.
