Carson Daly Was Away From Today To Host The Voice

Jacob subbed for Carson’s daily POPStart segments, along with other hosts, while the MTV alum took charge of hosting The Voice. The singing competition is currently airing live episodes that are filmed in Los Angeles. As per The Sun, the former Total Request Live host was absent from the show at the beginning of the week for several weeks. Given the shows are on opposite coasts, it is difficult for the host to be present on both.

The radio personality returned to the show on Friday alongside his co-hosts Dylan Dreyer, Craig Melvin, and Sheinelle Jones. However, the entire Today crew wasn’t back as both Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb were missing from the news desk. Although the reason for Hoda’s absence isn’t known, Savannah is recovering from flu-like symptoms and a high fever.

Today Carson Daly Has Had Chronic Back Pain For Years

Apart from hosting The Voice, Carson has also pitched in extended time for his other work commitments. Back in August, he took over his radio show while undergoing back surgery. It was his second surgery in three months after struggling with chronic pain for years. Ever since his snowmobile accident that happened in the 1990s, Carson dealt with this pain. However, later on, he underwent an Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion surgery to take off the lower back pain.
