Tearful Savannah Guthrie Opens Up About TODAY Drama: ‘Change Is Hard’

By Amber GoodhandRadar News Editor

New TODAY co-host Savannah Guthrie did an interview with Vogue in which she says anchoring the daytime talk show was a hard transition and RadarOnline.com has all the details.

Speaking with the magazine’s Rebecca Johnson, Guthrie appears in the November issue and addresses if and why she wanted the gig on TODAY.

“I am incredibly grateful to be given an opportunity to do a job that a lot of women I respect and admire have done before me,” Guthrie, 40, said.

“And I respect that the transition has been difficult for our viewers. Change is hard.”

As RadarOnline.com first reported, ratings for the once-popular NBC show plummeted after Ann Curry was replaced in June and ABC rival Good Morning America replaced them as the number one show in morning television.

Guthrie divorced then-BBC producer Mark Orchard in 2009 and when asked by Johnson the cause of the split, she says Guthrie got teary-eyed.

“When I gently probed about the cause of the divorce, [Guthrie’s] eyes filled with tears,” Johnson said in the article.

“‘Ok,’ she announced, ‘this is the lunch from hell.’ In other words, no comment.”
