The Today Show co-hosts are seemingly out of action, for now.  This morning, Savannah Guthrie suddenly left the morning show after testing positive for Covid around 7:30am east coast time.

During the shows, third hour, ‘Today’ co-host, Sheinelle Jones game a live update sharing: “It has been an interesting morning for us. As we said, Savannah left early, she wasn’t feeling great, so she took a Covid test.  It came back positive. So of course as soon as we found out, she rushed home to rest up. So Savannah, we love you, wishing you a speedy.”

This is actually Guthrie’s third time testing positive for Covid-19.   The first time was in January 2022, followed by May 2022.  Savannah is fully vaccinated.

Guthrie’s exit comes on the heels of co-host, Hoda Kotb’s, who has been absent from her Today and Today and Today with Hoda and Jenna, since her last live appearance back on February 17th.

Kotb’s current departure has yet to be explained by anyone connected with the show or NBC.

Fully vaccinated … and had covid three times. Hmmmm … real reliable “vaccine”. And real believable story too!

Love seeing anti-vaxxers here. Nice revealing yourself.

Indeed, Scott. People still feel compelled to spread this kind of (potentially deadly) misinformation? Wow.

It’s what people do best: spread misinformation and they spread it as fact. As someone who has had COVID, I can tell you it is not fun, but I am thankful for the vaccine because without it would have been one-hundred times worse.

Not sure why I am bothering, but for the sake of accuracy and completeness: I don’t recall anyone ever saying the Covid vaccine was 100% effective, just that it was (considerably) more effective than nothing (it is), that having it is more likely to make Covid less severe if you do get it (it does), that it’s more likely you’ll stay out of the hospital if you have had the vaccine and catch Covid (you are), and that if you’ve had the vaccine and do end up in the hospital, you’re more likely to come out (you are). All of that’s backed up by the numbers. All of it.

Savannah’s job brings her into contact with a lot of people on a daily basis . . . probably including many who are unvaccinated. I don’t find her story at all unbelievable.

Same; I’m actually surprised more news anchors have not been out with COVID.

Jason George Returning to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Main Cast for Upcoming Season

Soap opera alum Jason George (ex-Michael Bourne, Sunset Beach) is rejoining Grey’s Anatomy as a series regular for its upcoming 21st season.

According to Deadline, Jason will reprise his signature role of Ben Warren. Previously, the actor played Ben since season 6 of the ABC medical drama. Later, George became a series regular for seasons 12-14 before departing to join the ‘Grey’s’ spinoff, Station 19.

With Station 19 now canceled, it paved the way for George to bring Ben back to Seattle Grey’s Sloan. Over the past seven years, Jason was a mainstay on the firefighter drama and would make appearances and crossover to “Grey’s’.  Both series are produced by Shondaland and ABC signature.

In story, the seventh season of Station 19 had Ben tapping leaning into his medical skills while questioning his future as a firefighter in light of his shoulder injury. Then, in the Station 19 series finale, Ben told Captain Herrera that he was going back to finish his surgical residency. The story all fits together because when Ben was a fifth year resident at Grey Sloan, he found a way to pursue his other dream as a firefighter without jeopardizing his chances to return to the hospital and medicine one day.

George was featured on NBC’s Sunset Beach from 1997-1999 as lifeguard Michael Bourne and his love interest, Vanessa was played by Sherri Saum (ex-Keri, One Life to Live) who is also the wife of the late Kamar de los Reyes (ex-Antonio, One Life to Live)

In a post on X, following the story of his rejoining Grey’s Anatomy, George posted a video with the music from “Welcome Back Kotter” and the words “Well … it WAS kind of hush-hush. But now it’s official. Where my scrubs at?”

So, glad to hear Jason George is returning as a series regular to Grey’s Anatomy? Comment below.

There are some big changes afoot at General Hospital over the summer, and one of the biggest ones was revealed by the series Daytime Emmy- winning executive producer, Frank Valentini.

After winning the series fourth consecutive Outstanding Daytime Drama Series award, and 17th overall in the history of the 61-year-old soap opera, Valentini spoke with ABC 7’s On the Red Carpet at the 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

When asked what to expect coming up, the exec dropped a bombshell. Valentini shared, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.”

Now. speculation is running rampant of just who could it be! Is it possible that Jonathan Jackson will reprise his five-time Daytime Emmy-winning role of Lucky Spencer? Still others have thought it could actually be Greg Vaughan (because he may have wrapped his run on Days of our Lives months ago, along with Arianne Zucker, who departs later this summer on-screen) reprising the role of Lucky.

Could Valentini being referring to the return of John J. York as Mac Scorpio; who had to exit the series to undergo treatment for myelodysplastic syndromes and multiple smoldering myeloma (two blood and bone marrow disorders), but who recently returned a month ago to the set? Or, might it be the return of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig, as a now very much alive Morgan Corinthos? Fans are also wondering if GH somehow lured Nicholas Chavez back to the role of Spencer Cassadine; a role he vacated at the beginning of this year to film his leading role in Ryan Murphy’s Monsters anthology series as convicted murderer Lyle Mendenez.

In addition, Steve Burton (Jason), Kate Mansi (Kristina), and GH head writer, Elizabeth Korte, also shared some storyline intel with On the Red Carpet of what lies ahead through the summer months for Jason, Kristina, and all of the Davis women.

Watch the entire video package below.

Now weigh-in, which male actor is returning to General Hospital? Who do you hope it will be? Share your theories via the comment section.
