Hoda Kotb announces new project
On the Friday, August 26 broadcast of Today, Hoda Kotb brought up her new venture. She is the narrator of the famous children’s book, Goodnight Moon. This book has helped millions of children across the country fall asleep at night. Now, little kids will get to hear Hoda’s soothing and kind voice.
The audio version of the book comes out on September 13. Fans are looking forward to hearing her voice on the classic children’s tale. Hoda Kotb will narrate the book for the book’s 75th anniversary. Goodnight Moon was first published in 1947 and the original audiobook is narrated by Buffy Allen.
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

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.
