NEW YORK -- Monday marked Savannah Guthrie's first official day as co-host of "Today."
"It's an honor to be here," she said from behind the anchor desk.
"We are thrilled to have you," co-host Matt Lauer replied.
He noted her past contributions to "Today" as co-host of the show's third hour as well NBC's chief legal correspondent. She will keep the latter role.
"We're happiest because you bring a great attitude and what we like to call a weird sense of humor," Lauer said.
"7:02 and he's already calling me weird," Guthrie replied, laughing.
