This morning, Savannah Guthrie sat next to Matt Lauer as co-host on NBC's Today, the spot previously occupied by Ann Curry, who yesterday tearfully ended her 14-year career on the morning show. Guthrie, a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, is widely expected to be the new co-anchor of the 9 a.m. slot, according to Entertainment Weekly, but Today made little fanfare about the replacement.

The co-anchor duties were shaken up after Today's ABC rival, Good Morning America, claimed the number one ratings slot in April, ending Today's 16-year winning streak. Prior to Curry and Meredith Vieira before her, the co-host position was filled by Katie Couric, Deborah Norville and Jane Pauley.
