Kathie Lee & Hoda: Savannah Guthrie’s Engagement
Today the Today Show family announced the engagement of Savannah Guthrie to her long-time boyfriend, Mike Feldman. Mike proposed to Savannah during a vacation to Turks and Caicos. Mike suggested they order champagne and watch the sunset, then he asked for her hand. Savannah said they have been talking about marriage for the past four years, so when he finally asked her, it didn’t dawn on her that he was actually proposing.
She said when it finally dawned on her when he pulled out the ring box and she was so excited that she was just looking at him and not at the ring. Mike, via phone, said that they have not yet set a date but he wants to get married “as soon as possible.” Hoda and Kathie Lee then showed Savannah a few sample wedding gowns that they had Photoshopped to look as if Savannah were wearing, including Kate Middleton’s gown from the Royal Wedding two years ago. Congratulations, Savannah!
Kathie Lee & Hoda: International Justice Mission
Hoda discussed her work with the IJM, the International Justice Mission. The IJM was founded when President and CEO, Gary Haugen, visited Rwanda. He thought about how to solve problems like that of the genocide in Rwanda and decided the only solution was to solve problems through local justice. The international human rights organization now rescues victims of violence, sexual exploitation, slavery and oppression worldwide.
