Is Hoda Kotb leaving Today? According to a report at EW.com, Kathie Lee Gifford's drinking pal has put out some feelers.
EW has learned exclusively that the Today co-host is quietly meeting with studios and pitching herself for new hosting gigs, such as a daytime talk show. The moves could signal an upcoming exit from the NBC position that she’s held since 2007, or simply represent a savvy negotiation tactic — Kotb’s contract with Today expires this fall.
Those close to Kotb calmed fears, by stating the Today co-host was simply "expanding relationships and having coffee with a few people." Coffee? Hoda drinks wine, not coffee. With the ratings decline, tabloid mess and rumors, does anyone blame her for looking?
