Celebrity Journalist Speaker and television host Hoda Kotb has been an NBC correspondent for over ten years, but her most recognized role is playing co-host alongside Kathie Lee Gifford on NBC’s TODAY. Since 2007 the duo has brought smiles to viewer’s faces, being named “TODAY’s happy hour” by USA Today and “appointment television” by Entertainment Weekly. In 2010, the show earned an Emmy award for Outstanding Morning Program.
Before her role as half of the fun, fresh, relatable duo on TODAY, Hoda Kotb covered a number of serious human-interest stories including the one-year anniversary special on Hurricane Katrina, the war in Iraq, and the devastating 2004 tsunami in Southeast Asia. That same year the television host co-anchored an MSNBC special entitled “Shades of Hope…Shadows of Hate,” that reflected on racism in Alabama.
Hoda Kotb is more than a television host. A breast cancer survivor herself, she has played an active part in several initiatives set forth to raise awareness about the disease. During her battle, Kotb proved her strength and impact on viewers by hosting the television series “Your Total Health” from 2004-2008. Television host Hoda Kotb is available for guest appearances, speaking arrangements, and charity involvement.
