“Is Hoda leaving?” one fan wrote, while another commented: “Are you leaving?” A third added: “This looks like a hidden goodbye message?”

Luckily for fans, there has been nothing to suggest this is the case and other followers were more focused on the bond between the two women. “I absolutely adore your friendship,” one wrote, while another remarked: “Love everything about this.”

Hoda and Savannah have been working together on Today since 2017 after Matt Lauer was fired. Earlier in the year, Savannah discussed her working partnership with Hoda during a celebration for the show at The Paley Center.

Chatting about the moment Hoda replaced Matt, she said: “All I know was in that moment, it felt like I could drown if Hoda hadn’t reached down and grabbed my hand.”

She added: “I will always say she saved the show full stop. And holding hands with her and being like, ‘We’re going to do this together,’ meant everything to me. I don’t think I had the confidence by myself.”

On their female partnership, she continued: “It’s wonderful to have a female partnership, but to me, to have this friend and cheerleader and partner, and I really feel that from her, and I hope we share that. “It’s incredible. I always say, ‘I’ll hold my hands and close my eyes and go anywhere with you.’ I would.”
