Savannah Guthrie Anchors 'Today' From Her Basement

Savannah Guthrie just joined the rest of the country in working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The ‘Today’ anchor co-anchored the show from her basement because she is feeling a little under the weather. Guthrie joined Hoda Kotb, who co-anchored from the studio.

"Here's what happened: I wasn't feeling my best, a little sore throat, some sniffles, I wouldn't have thought anything of it, but we are in different times, aren't we?" she said.

The mother did this in an abundance of caution and to better practice social distancing.

"And so here I am, I'm working from home as we speak, and we're still together. And we're gonna get this show on the air, and we have a lot of information we want to get to our viewers this morning."

Guthrie joins Al Roker and Craig Melvin in working from home after an employee of the 3rd hour of Today tested positive for COVID-19.

Roker continued to share the weather forecast from his kitchen.

"This show's been around a long time, 60-something years, but never has this happened before," Savannah said.

Guthrie also shared some behind-the-scenes shots on Instagram that show her husband Mike Feldman helping out.

Guthrie captioned the post, “Live... from my basement... this is TODAY. Big shoutout to my husband @feldmike who has turned into producer and technician!!”
