(Newser) – Savannah Guthrie sat in Ann Curry's former chair this morning as co-host of Today, and it looks like the seat will become hers permanently. In a not-so-surprising development, NBC will officially announce later today that Guthrie will be Matt Lauer's full-time co-host, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Her name had been in the mix since news of Curry's pending departure first surfaced.
