Today show has announced the hosts replacing Meghan Kelly during the third hour of the morning show.
For those wondering who would take over Meghan Kelly’s 9 a.m. slot after she was ousted following controversial comments she made about blackface, the NBC show has revealed the new lineup consisting of Dylan Dreyer, Sheinelle Jones, Craig Melvin, and Al Roker.

Al Roker shared the same news, tweeting, “I love these guys.”
It had been speculated Jenna Bush Hager would take over Meghan’s slot, but with the Today show now having to find a replacement for Kathie Lee Gifford – who leaves in April – rumors are swirling Hager will replace Gifford as the co-host for the 10 a.m hour alongside Hoda Kotb.
