A co-host of NBC’s "Today" is being courted as a potential new co-host for ABC’s "The View," reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
"The View" is said to be interested in Hoda Kotb and has reportedly reached out to her. She’s appealing because of her news experience, which is something the show lost when Meredith Vieira departed, and she adds diversity to the show’s panel, the story notes. She would replace longtime "View" host Joy Behar, who is leaving the program.
A representative for ABC said there was "zero truth" to the report, while NBC reportedly wants to keep Kotb on the network. Kotb co-hosts with Kathie Lee Gifford on the fourth hour of "Today."
