Kotb will maintain her job as co-anchor of the show’s fourth hour, with Kathie Lee Gifford, a role she’s held since 2007. Per the Post, “Kotb gets up around 4 a.m. to host Today from 7 to 9 a.m., then records updates for the West Coast and other video before going back on the air.” While the Post suggests that Kotb is content with her salary, it was a different story for E! host Catt Sadler, who in December quit her job after learning that her male co-host earns double her salary.
