Kathie Lee Gifford Says ‘Today’ Segment Was ‘Crap’ Before She Arrived

Nov 8, 2013  •  Post A Comment

Kathie Lee Gifford was joined by her "Today" co-host Hoda Kotb on her new podcast, and talked about how their segment — prior to Gifford’s arrival — was "crap," reports TheWrap.com.

Kotb agreed that the segment wasn’t interesting, the story says, with the co-host calling it a "bore snore."

The fourth hour of "Today" was hosted by Kotb, Natalie Morales and former "Today" anchor Ann Curry from 2007 until Gifford joined in 2008. She replaced Curry and Morales.

Gifford added that she was hesitant to join the show because she was "afraid of being bored," the story says.

“I turned it on and it was basically a discussion of what white shirt holds up best in the wash,” Gifford said of show. “Thank goodness I don’t keep a gun handy or I would have shot myself. It was deadly, it was awful, it was boring and I told ["Today" executive producer] Jim Bell that.”

  1. …and it still is boring. Just with a less informed host.

  2. I can name that tune in one note – the only one Kathie Lee has ever had.

  3. Kathy Lee & Hoda’s hour of the Today Show is a National Treasure, and anyone who says different… I will fight you.
    Seriously though, something is working, because their approach has crept into the preceding hours of the show, for better or worse.

  4. Kathy Lee is the only thing worth watching on TODAY. She ever leaves, they should just pack it up.
