Hoda Kotb has officially been named co-host of Today after veteran host, Matt Lauer, was fired by NBC last year for alleged sexual misconduct. Watch the official announcement made Tuesday morning.

Kotb had been filling in for Lauer since his departure at the end of November, but will now permanently join Savannah Guthrie in the first two hours of the show. The 53-year-old will continue her hosting duties alongside Kathie Lee Gifford in the 10 a.m. hour, a role she’s had since 2008.
