Today host Savannah Guthrie suffered an awkward moment live on-air. She dealt with technical difficulties while her co-host Hoda Kotb has been away. Savannah didn’t know her mic was still on while Al Roker was giving the forecast. Al filmed his remote segment from Denver, Colorado.
He was there to report the weather from Empower Field at Mile High. He showed one of the weather maps from around the country, including Florida’s West coast map in lieu of Hurricane Ian. Al was cut-off mid-sentence by Savannah, who didn’t realize that her hot mic was still on. Read on to learn what happened.
Savannah Guthrie caught on her hot mic?
Today Show viewers were met with an awkward silence and background noise. His co-host was caught on the mic hot saying, “What do I do?” The camera panned over to Savannah Guthrie who stood in the Plaza in New York City. She wore a black leather jacket with a matching all-black outfit.
Savannah said: “Alright, and now let’s get a check of the weather in your neck of the woods.” She looks over to a crew member and adds: “I’ve always wanted to do that…” She was abruptly cut-off mid-sentence. This awkward blunder was confusing to the fans who were watching at home.
They were wondering what happened during the segment. It appears that there was a technical glitch that prevented Savannah Guthrie from hearing Al give his forecast. She wanted to jump in and say something. However, as you can tell, there was a delay due to a glitch.
The Today Show hasn’t been without its share of blunders. Some fans have taken notice and called out the show for it. Al Roker was caught giving his co-hosts the stink-eye during one broadcast. He also took part in another awkward live moment with Savannah.
Where did Hoda Kotb go?
Savannah Guthrie wasn’t caught saying anything bad on her mic. However, it had fans wondering about her reported feud with Hoda Kotb. She’s been away from the desk for the past few days. Hoda was absent on both Monday and Tuesday’s broadcast of the Today Show.
Savannah Guthrie co-hosted the show with her colleagues Craig Melvin and Tom Llamas. This comes after Hoda struggled to stay awake behind the scenes. She was caught in mid-yawn during the commercial break. The fan-favorite admitted that her two kids kept her up the night before.
Savannah and Hoda took part in a friendly interview for Sirius XM’s Today Show Radio. The two moms discussed their nighttime routines and how they prepare for those early mornings. It’s not easy for them. The lack of sleep could be the real reason why they’re reportedly grumpy at work.
