After nearly 10 years with the TODAY show family as a correspondent, Jenna Bush-Hager has been named as Kathie Lee’s replacement for the popular fourth-hour segment of the show.

Hager will co-host the hour alongside Hoda Kotb after Kathie Lee steps down in April.

The news came as no surprise since Hager has routinely filled in as a guest co-host for Kathie Lee and Hoda, as well as appearing on other segments of the morning television show.

Kathie Lee gave her blessings to Hager on Twitter, tweeting, “So thrilled for my sweet friend. She will be a beautiful addition to this show that I have grown to love so much.”
