Jenna Bush Hager is giving thanks to her "Today" co-host Hoda Kotb for giving her a chance. On Wednesday's episode of "Today With Hoda and Jenna" the ladies talked about switching careers and getting their big break. During the segment Jenna got teary eyed as she revealed Hoda was the one to give her a shot. "You asked me to fill in with you, and I'll never forget it. My one was you," she said. The pair became full-time co-hosts of "Today's" fourth hour show in 2019.
