NBC’s Today rang in the New Year with a blast from the past on Monday’s show.
Longtime co-host Katie Couric returned as guest co-host for the first time since leaving the NBC morning show in 2006. Couric is filling in all week for co-anchor Savannah Guthrie, who’s on maternity leave.
Couric’s return was heavily teased by the NBC morning show on social media last week and over the weekend and her appearance was included in the morning highlights at the top of Monday’s show.
At the top of the show, Matt Lauer joked that it was January of 1997, since Couric was again by his side. She jokingly introduced herself to him before saying how thrilled she was to be back for the week, filling in for Guthrie. She also joked that the return might seem a bit like, cue the music, The Twilight Zone, for Lauer.
