Savannah Guthrie (full name : Savanna Clark Guthrie) was born on 27th December 1971 in Melbourne, Australia. She currently resides in New York City and has acquired United States Citizenship. She is 45 years of age, and her occupation is TV journalist. Her height is 5.9 feet.
She was born in Australia while her father was working there, and she moved to the US with her family. When she was 16, her father who worked as a mining engineer, died from heart attack. An alumna of the Amphitheater High School in Tucson, Guthrie had a stellar academic record, graduating cum laude for her journalism undergraduate degree from the University of Arizona in 1993. In between her career, Guthrie decided to pursue higher education and joined Georgetown University Law Center, where she received a magna cum laude for her JD degree in 2002. She stood first in the Arizona Bar Exam enabling her to become a District of Columbia and Arizona's bar member, and as a Order of the Coif member where she worked on issues of domestic violence, she was awarded the International Academy of Trial Lawyer's Student Advocacy Award.
Guthrie began her career by working for 2 years as a broadcaster for KMIZ (an affiliate of ABC in Columbia), later moving back to Tucson having received a job from KVOA (a NBC affiliate). Five years later, she moved to WRC-TV in Washington and covered important issues like the September 11 attacks and the Anthrax attacks in 2001. She then decided to pursue her higher studies, as stated in the paragraph above. She worked in Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld, a law firm for some time before joining CourtTV in 2004 as a national trial correspondent covering major stories such as the hearings of Samuel Alito (a US Supreme Court nominee), Carlie Brucia's abduction/murder case, and the trial of Michael Jackson.
Guthrie joined NBC News as a correspondent in 2007, covering the 2008 vice-presidential candidate Sarah Paulin's race. Later that year in December, she became NBC News' White House Correspondent. Guthrie appeared as Chief Legal Analyst for NBC News on May 2011, and she appeared as a co-anchor for The Today Show on July, 2012 replacing Ann Curry. She now serves as an anchor for NBC News and a nightly News substitute anchor for NBC. Guthrie earns $500 thousand as salary every year, and her net worth is approximated at $2 million.
Guthrie's height has often been the subject of speculation among the viewers, who wonder whether she wears no shoes at all on the set of her TV shows. She has put these rumors to rest, and has stated that the rumor is just a hoax. She still towers over her co-host Lauer, and she has absolutely no problems with her height.
Guthrie was earlier married from 2005 to 2009 to Mark Orchard, a BBC reporter that she met during the Michael Jackson trials. Her current husband is Michael Feldman, with whom she has a baby. She dated Feldman for 5 years, and then finally married him after being engaged for ten months. Most wouldn't know these facts about Guthrie : she is scared of frogs, and loves playing the guitar.
