Matt Lauer, fired from NBC’s Today following allegations of sexual harassment, texted Hoda Kotb after news broke yesterday that she was replacing him as co-anchor. Kotb, who had been filling in following Lauer’s dismissal in November, joins Savannah Guthrie. Kotb told ET Lauer “said congratulations and some really nice words.” Kotb will, for now, continue to co-host Today’s 10a hour with Kathie Lee Gifford, who was also enthusiastic. “So happy for my dear friend @hodakotb…Nobody does it better!” Gifford tweeted.
