Returning to the SiriusXM airwaves this week for her radio show, Hoda Kotb talked about her new role on NBC’s TODAY show. After weeks of speculation about who would fill the vacant anchor spot, the decision was announced this week that Kotb will serve as co-anchor of the morning news program alongside Savannah Guthrie. The TODAY show is now the only national morning news program to feature two female anchors.

Through all of the nervous jitters, Hoda said her daughter is what kept her calm throughout this emotional rollercoaster.

We also caught up with Hoda after she wrapped her first day as co-anchor. Hear what she had to say below.
