“Today” Star Savannah Guthrie Has Wardrobe Malfunction on Live TV: ‘It Was All Very Innocent’


Savannah Guthrie just gave us all the smile we desperately needed.

On Thursday (May 7,) Guthrie was reporting the day’s news with fellow Today stars Hoda Kotb, Al Roker and Craig Melvin when it became fairly obvious that she was having a little bit of trouble in her live shot.

“Right before we came on, my mic, which was right here, dropped down my shirt, and I knew I was supposed to read the intro, so I just made a decision to reach out and get it,” Guthrie laughed as video showed her putting her hand down her shirt to retrieve the microphone. “It was all very innocent!”

“That timing was perfect,” Kotb replied. “I see a meme in your future or a GIF.”

It was certainly a much needed bout of laughter for all of them, as they have been broadcasting from their respective homes since the coronavirus quarantine began. Kotb is the only co-anchor who has been consistently filming her segments from the show’s actual studios.

And yes, there were more than professional reasons as to why Guthrie made the decision to stay home and broadcast from there.

And it has to do with her kids.

“We’re all getting a lot of time together, which is actually really great,” said the mother of two in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. “But also I feel like our kids really need us right now — whatever age they are — whether they seem like it or not. They know and they sense, even little ones like ours.”
