She explained why she went for this new gig. Hoda thought about the popularity behind the classic children’s tale. The television personality wanted to soothe kids and help them fall asleep at night.

“When I first saw Goodnight Moon and read it, I was like, ‘What is it about this book that is captivating to kids?'” Hoda Kotb explained. “I realized it’s everything. It’s a child’s room, it’s a child’s brain, and it’s the calming effects that words on a page can have.”

She mentioned that the “special anniversary edition of Goodnight Moon” will come out on August 30. Fellow co-host Craig Melvin mentioned that Hoda Kotb’s audio version will come out a few weeks later. He told viewers that they can “wake up with Hoda [on Today]” and she will help “put your kids to bed at night.” Craig assured her that she has “the perfect voice for an audiobook.”

Savannah Guthrie away from Today

The news of Hoda Kotb’s latest gig comes after Savannah Guthrie has been away from the show. She went on another absence this past week. At first, Savannah admitted that she was too exhausted to host the morning show. However, she’s gone on trips with her kids, as evidenced by her Instagram page.

As TV Shows Ace previously reported, fans have a feeling that Savannah is ready to leave her long-time position. There have also been rumors that Hoda Kotb wants to move on from the show. Despite their civil on-air behavior, an insider told The Sun that the two “can’t stand each other.” According to reports, Savannah sees herself as the head of NBC.

  1. I will be reading Good Night Moon to my Grand Children in my own recorded voice! Honda can not replace the voice of a Child’s love one!

  2. Please don’t tell me I won’t be waking up to Hoda on the today show her chemistry with Shanley and Dylan and all and Carson and Craig makes me happy it’s genuine what is going on send Guthrie to help Donald trump .he is needing someone he can relate to

  3. No, I will miss Hoda early morning, she is the one that makes the show for me. I am happy for her though doing something else she loves. God bless and enjoy!!! Sincerely Anna Gebhardt, Trenton Mo.

  4. I feel Hoda is not a good fit for the Today show. I’m sure she’s a nice person, but I don’t feel “nice” is successful in environments like the news shows. I feel she has way too many personal issues happening to be a positive contributor.

  5. Dianne, please do not insult President Trump by putting Guthrie’s name in the same sentence. She is the very reason I stopped watching the Today show! President Trump can relate to everyone and is a very sincere and genuine person.

  6. I won’t even watch Today if Hoda leaves the show. She is a real person and so down to earth. Please stay Hoda, and Savannah, it’s time to retire!

  7. I don’t like Koda at all. She’s a camera and microphone hog. Can’t even hear a guest answer a question because Hoda is constantly interrupting or “uh huh uh huh”

  8. I can’t believe in this day and age and with what is going on in this world, that we as Americans are subjected to this kind of poor television viewing. I for one am ashamed to see how grown adult woman vie for attention and humiliate themseves day after day. The network in my eyes has reached an all time low in allowing this to take place. Who is going to crash and burn and when? There are people who are looking for jobs and would not make a mokery out of TODAY. Do the right thing, ask both or better yet, all 3 to please leave, we deseve much better than they can ever begin to provide.

  9. I think Hoda should go and keep Samantha. Hoda does not seem to care about her appearance especially her hair and makeup.
    Keep Jennifer Bush Hager.
