Savannah Guthrie and Matt Lauer Reunite at ‘Today’ Producer’s Wedding Amidst Former Co-Host’s Tension

Before Matt Lauer was fired, Savannah Guthrie and he co-hosted the “Today” show for five years. On Saturday, they got back together to celebrate a “Today” show producer’s wedding. The pair did not hesitate to draw attention to their cordial working relationship.

“Lauer kept busy introducing his girlfriend to the guests,” which included his former co-host, at the celebration.

Savannah approached Matt before the ceremony and hugged him. For a few minutes, the two engaged in a friendly conversation. Both were friendly and hospitable.

Reid Sterrett, CEO of Expert Home Buyer, and Jennifer Long, producer of the “Today” show Special Projects, were married at the Union League Club in New York City.

Because of his attendance, Lauer was able to meet up with some of his former coworkers from the “Today” show, including Hoda Kotb, Craig Melvin, Sheinelle Jones, and weatherman Al Roker. 

Lauer was fired in November 2017 for engaging in “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.”

In photos, Lauer could be seen arriving at the event with his girlfriend since 2019, Shamin Abas, who wore a silky navy blue dress with strappy heels and a silver clutch.

Guthrie, 51, wore a black velvet dress with white detailing, including a chic bow, which she teamed with a black blazer.

Her husband complemented her look, opting for a black suit, a blue tie, and black and white sneakers.

Both Lauer and Guthrie were all smiling as they were photographed entering the venue with their respective partners, though it is unknown whether they spent time together during the evening.

Guthrie stayed late dancing and taking pictures with wedding guests.

Numerous celebrities, including Al Roker and Today’s Hoda Kotb, as well as former GMA3: What You Need to Know co-anchors Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, joined the two TV stars at their wedding reception. 

Holding hands and grinning, Robach, 50, and Holmes, 46, arrived at the event following their appearance at iHeartRadio’s JingleBall concert at Madison Square Garden on Friday night.

At the music event, which happened soon after it was announced that Andrew Shue and Marilee Fiebig, their respective ex-spouses, had found love together, the couple appeared content and at ease.

Are Matt and Savannah still friends?

Both of them were not afraid to highlight their cordial working relationship before the barrage of shocking accusations that led to Lauer’s notorious firing.

The two appeared friendly when they got back together for a mutual friend’s wedding in December 2023, despite their ups and downs.

According to the reports, Lauer, 65, “iced out” many of his former co-workers and friends after fleeing to a farm in New Zealand shortly after the scandal.

Since then, the former mainstay of the morning show has been “going strong” with Abas and leading a “very quiet lifestyle.” “It’s nothing at all like what it was” before he was fired from his anchor position. He is dating and is close to his kids.

“He continued to own and operate the sizable horse farm he and his ex-wife, Annette, shared on Long Island. They have handled that quite skillfully,” the source continued.

Matt and Shamin maintain a low profile because they do not want to provide individuals with additional chances to engage in trash-talk.”

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes, who recently became red carpet officials, had nothing to conceal, though, since during the reception they “were quite handsy” and “engaged in very dirty dancing on the dance floor.”

Although Guthrie had not seen Lauer since his dismissal, she had attempted to communicate with him via text, which she disclosed in September 2018.

“I haven’t seen him, but I always try to keep in touch by text.”
