In honor of the news anchor’s 10-year anniversary on the morning show, the network celebrated the milestone by looking back at some of her most iconic moments, from hosting then president Donald Trump’s town hall to traveling around the world.
Guthrie joined the third hour of “Today”in 2011 after working as a White House correspondent and chief legal analyst for NBC News. She became a co-anchor of the show in 2012.
“I feel grateful, really grateful,” Guthrie said, tearing up on-air. “This has just been a beautiful experience, and thank you so much. And to all of our crew — this place is so special.”

‘Our whole show is different:‘Today’ anchors Hoda Kotb, Savannah Guthrie reflect on historic present
Later on the show, Guthrie was surprised by husband Mike Feldman and her children, Vale, 6, and Charley, 4, who all paid a visit to Studio 1A.
“Oh my god!” Guthrie screamed, while hugging her two kids. “Now all my dreams came true.”
She also thanked her “Today” co-hosts, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Craig Melvin and Carson Daly for organizing the sweet gesture.
“Now my whole family is here,” she said.
Guthrie also received special congratulatory messages from those outside of her team, including Jimmy Fallon.
“Hey Savannah, congratulations on 10 years at the ‘Today’ show. It seems like only yesterday you started today. From all of us here from ‘Tonight,’ here’s 10 more years of ‘Today,’ starting tomorrow,” Fallon joked, which Guthrie called “cute.”
Tennis star Roger Federer also shared his thoughts Monday with a virtual message during the show.
“I wanted to congratulate you on amazing 10 years at the ‘Today’ show. Thank you for having me on your show. Also thank you for all your support over the years with the foundation and being a great tennis player. Hope we can play again very soon,” he said, referencing their 2018 tennis match.
In March 2018, Guthrie and Jack Sock played a celebrity match against Bill Gates and Federer to raise money for Federer’s foundation, managing to raise $2.5 million.
“I’ve never played tennis in front of 17 people, let alone 17,000, but I couldn’t say no because it’s a great cause,” Guthrie told USA TODAY at the time. “And not as important, but up there, is the fact that I am a completely obsessed Roger Federer fan. I admire him in every way – his tennis, his philanthropy – and I was so excited to have the chance to meet him.”
