(Newser) – Looks like a new Today for Savannah Guthrie. She's been tapped by NBC to replace bounced Today co-host Ann Curry, sources tell the Hollywood Reporter. She's already been offered the job, but there's no immediate word on her response—or the deal she may be negotiating, notes the New York Times. The network wants a new co-host in place before the London Olympics.

For the last year Guthrie, 40, who was born in Australia and raised in Arizona, has been co-host of Today's 9am hour with Natalie Morales and Al Roker, and the news division's chief legal correspondent. She was previously NBC's White House correspondent and a co-anchor of an MSNBC morning news program. For other things you probably don't know about Guthrie, check here.
