Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie Appears Wednesday on Rival Fox & Friends Promoting Book About Faith and God


The Today Show seems to really be loosening up.

They’re allowing the show’s co-host Savannah Guthrie to cross enemy lines: she’s set to appear Wednesday morning on Fox and Friends on Fox News.

Guthrie will be promoting her new book about Christian values, “Mostly What God Does: Reflections on Seeking and Finding His Love Everywhere,” during a segment she taped today. The possibility exists that she’ll be on both shows at the same time. Even Barbara Walters didn’t do that!

Apparently Guthrie and Fox and Fiends co-host Ainsley Earhardt have bonded through their religious fervor.

Guthie has been widely criticized lately by “Today” viewers for flogging her wares on the show. A lot. Not only has Savannah jawed with Hoda and friends, she invited country singer Hillary Scott to perform. They befriended each other when Savannah was on her book tour in Nashville. The result was a spike in Scott’s record sales.

It’s hard to say how Savannah’s book — which is Jesus centric — is going down at home. She’s been married for several years to Mike Feldman, who is Jewish and says so on his Wikipedia page. But according to a piece in the NY Times from 2017, the kids are being raised in the church.

Savannah’s book is described by her publisher: “Sharing hard-won wisdom forged from mountaintop triumphs, crushing failures, and even the mundane moments of day-to-day living, Mostly What God Does reveals the transformative ways that belief in God helps us discover real hope for this life and beyond.”

Say amen, somebody!
