Early Life

Savannah Clark Guthrie, a television anchor named after her great-great-grandmother, was born on December 27, 1971, in Melbourne, Australia, where her father was stationed for his job. Guthrie and her family moved to Tucson, Arizona, when she was two years old. She grew up as one of three children, learning to play tennis and the piano. Her father died when she was 16, and her mother, a stay-at-home mother, returned to work. Guthrie later revealed that her mother was her greatest inspiration.

Early Career

Guthrie went to the University of Arizona after high school. She was initially unsure of what to study, so her mother suggested she take journalism classes. Guthrie got a job at a local public television station while still in school. When she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism in 1993, she went to work for a local TV station in Columbia, Missouri, for two years before accepting a position with an NBC affiliate in her hometown of Tucson.

Five years later, Guthrie moved east to another NBC affiliate, WRC-TV in Washington, D.C., where she covered the Pentagon attacks and anthrax mailings on September 11, 2001. She was studying law at Georgetown University Law Center while working as a freelance reporter. She graduated with honors in 2002 and scored the highest on the Arizona bar exam.

Guthrie worked for Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld from 2002 to 2003, specializing in white-collar criminal defense. In 2004, she returned to television journalism as a legal affairs correspondent for Court TV.

NBC’s ‘Today’ Show

Guthrie rejoined NBC in 2007 as a legal correspondent before serving as the network’s White House correspondent from 2008 to 2011. She covered the 2008 presidential election, most notably accompanying Sarah Palin’s campaign. Guthrie was a member of the team that won an Emmy for their election night coverage. She also co-anchored The Daily Rundown on MSNBC in 2010 and 2011.

Guthrie joined the Today show in June 2011 as co-host of the third hour and chief legal correspondent. In addition to interviewing Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Meryl Streep, she sparked controversy when she compared breastfeeding to going to the bathroom.

Guthrie replaced Ann Curry as co-anchor of Today a year later, in July 2012. Her co-anchor, Matt Lauer, greeted her enthusiastically on her first day, telling the audience that she had a great attitude and a “weird” sense of humor.

Guthrie broke the news to viewers on November 29, 2017, with fellow Today personality Hoda Kotb by her side, that Lauer had been fired over allegations of sexual misconduct. Today’s ratings surpassed those of ABC’s Good Morning America over a two-week period for the first time in a year, thanks to the subsequent pairing of Guthrie and Kotb.

Guthrie made headlines the following March when a microphone caught her swearing before returning from a commercial break. The host appeared unfazed, tweeting, “Check, check – is this thing on?” and adding, “guess it’s a good thing I don’t wear a mic all day. #ohdarn.”

On August 13, 2014, Vale Guthrie Feldman was born.

Guthrie announced on June 7, 2016, that she was pregnant again and that she would miss the Summer Olympics in Rio due to concerns about the Zika virus, which has been linked to severe birth defects. On December 8, that year, the family welcomed son Charles Max.
