Kathie Lee Gifford: 'There Are Times When I'm Overwhelmed By Loneliness' in Wake of Frank's Death
Kathie Lee Gifford continues to mourn the loss of her late husband Frank, but she’s found peace knowing he’s in a better place.

In August 2015, the Today show anchor laid Frank to rest when he passed away at the age of 84. On the morning of his death, Kathie said she felt a “peace that passes all understanding” when she saw the amazed look on her husband’s face.

“He saw Jesus and Jesus took his breath away. My son then came and helped me try to revive him. He had the same peace. We’ve all had it since.

New ‘Today’ Team Gears Up for Olympic Challenge in Morning-News Wars

New ‘Today’ Team Gears Up for Olympic Challenge in Morning-News Wars
Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb are going to South Korea to help “Today” cover the Winter Olympics. They are in the midst of a gold-medal task all their own.

NBCUniversal’s mammoth coverage of the Games from PyeongChang, South Korea, typically lends a ratings boost to the NBC morning-show franchise that Kotb and Guthrie co-anchor each weekday. And their journey comes at a time when the show has eked out the thinnest of margins against its main rival, ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Season to date as of Feb. 2, the NBC program leads its competitor by just 8,000 viewers.

“We are just putting on the best show we can every single day,” says Guthrie in an interview. “If you try to look at what the other show is doing, you drive yourself crazy.”

The duo may go crazy anyway. NBCUniversal will broadcast more than 2,400 hours of Olympics coverage across its networks and digital outlets, and “Today

Asked by TMZ about the choice to wear the Adrianna Papell gown, Manning criticized her stylist Chaunielle Brown for the choice. “It’s wack that my stylist didn’t tell me that,” she said. “Now everyone else can afford it, that’s what’s cool about it,

‘Today’ Executive Producer Don Nash Will Step Down

Don Nash, a veteran NBC News executive who has led NBC’s “Today” through years of scorched-earth battle with rival ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is stepping down from his post as the show’s executive producer, NBC News said Wednesday.

A change in a news show’s top producer is not unusual when new talent is put in place in front of the camera. NBC News at the start of 2018 named Hoda Kotb to replace Matt Lauer as a co-anchor of the morning-news franchise, just weeks after Lauer was ousted from the program when NBC News discovered inappropriate workplace behavior. New producers were put in place at NBC’s “NBC Nightly News” after Lester Holt took over the anchor slot from Brian Williams in 2015 and at “Meet the Press” when Chuck Todd was named to take over from David Gregory.

Yet Nash is stepping down after NBC News said it would conduct an internal review of how

While discussing Damon’s upcoming Super Bowl ad, Kathie Lee Gifford asked the “Downsizing” actor about the backlash he received over comments made on ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers,” where he said sexual misconduct should be judged on a “spectrum of behavior.” “I really wish I’d listened a lot more before I weighed in on this,” Damon told Gifford. “Ultimately, what it is for me is that I don’t want to further anybody’s pain with anything that I do or say. And so for that I’m really sorry.”
