NBC's new Today Show host Savannah Guthrie, who took Ann Curry's seat next to co-host Mark Lauer last week, is said to be suffering from severe migraines due to stress from her new job. The 40-year-old famously took Curry's former spot in the morning show, but the pressure has apparently taken its toll on her. According to the New York Post, a source claimed that Guthrie feels pressured after taking over Ann and that she had seen a doctor several times a week for her headaches.
Ann Curry leaving the "Today" Show created a great slump in ratings for the morning talk show. Savannah Guthrie became the new co-anchor on "Today," and viewers are proving that the transition is not welcomed. Ann Curry's former talk show on NBC was beat by ABC's "Good Morning America," by 357,000 viewers last week, according to Nielson Co.
Savannah Guthrie started her new job Monday, as Matt Lauer's co-host on NBC's "Today," replacing Ann Curry who held the position for a year. Guthrie had previously worked as NBC's chief legal analyst. The 40-year-old anchor told the Associated Press that it was a privilege to have one of those uncommon jobs that "you can describe as fun and actually mean it."
With rumors looming about Ann Curry's imminent axe from the "Today" show, there is speculation as to who will replace her on the popular morning show. Most are betting that Curry will be replaced by Savannah Guthrie or Hoda Kotb. 40-year-old Guthrie has been working with NBC since 2007 as a legal analyst and correspondent. She is an attorney and has been a regular on reporting from trial such as Michael Jackson's.
