On the heels of moderating the Donald Trump town hall, Today Show host Savannah Guthrie is looking to upgrade her deal with NBC, per Page Six. Initially panned for giving Trump a platform, Guthrie has since been praised for how she handled the President.
Page Six reports that Guthrie, who makes about $8 million a year now, is on the verge of signing a new "megadeal" with the network. A source said:
Savannah’s new deal will be significantly more than $8 million a year, taking into consideration inflation, [Matt] Lauer’s old deal [of $20 million] and her popularity.
Another insider told Page Six:
Savannah is in a new realm now at the network.
