Hoda Kotb Debuts As "Today" Show Co-Anchor

Hoda Kotb debuts today as the official co-anchor of NBC's "Today" show.  

Kotb will join Savannah Guthrie at the anchor desk for the first two hours of "Today." 

The 53-year-old Kotb is filling the vacancy created when long-time anchor Matt Lauer was fired in late November over sexual misconduct.  

She'll continue co-hosting the fourth hour of "Today" with Kathie Lee Gifford.  Kotb has frequently substituted on "Today's" anchor desk over the years.  

She joined NBC as a "Dateline" correspondent in 1998.
