  • Hoda Kotb posted about her daily routine before going live on the Today show.

  • On Instagram, Hoda showed her followers an exclusive look at the studio, her dressing room, and more.

If you've ever wondered what it's like being a morning show co-host, Hoda Kotb just gave a peek inside her world on Instagram.

Earlier this week, the Today show co-anchor shared two Instagram videos of her daily routine before the cameras start rolling. In her first video, Hoda is seen wearing a mask and roaming around backstage with her cup of coffee. She then shows fans an empty studio 1-A and her dressing room, all while talking about the safety measures in place amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A little while later, Hoda posted another video of herself doing her hair with her favorite tool, a Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler. "Usually I say it takes a pound of gel and a hammer ... or this thing," Hoda said while showing off the styling product.

Not surprisingly, Today fans loved the mini tour. "Thanks for sharing your studio routine with us and thanks for being safe and wearing a mask ..." one fan wrote. "Good morning Hoda!!! I LOVE your video! Wishing you a wonderful Friday! I’m drinking my coffee too waiting on the Today Show to come on! 💞," another said. A different fan commented, "Thanks for this! So cool to see your morning and your dressing room.

In case you're curious, Hoda told Elmo (yes, Elmo) while on Sesame Street's Not Too Late Show with Elmo that she wakes up at 4 a.m. every day.

"I go downstairs, and I have to study," Hoda told the muppet. "Because you know what? I interview a lot of different people on the Today show, so I have to read all about them."

And that's all before she even arrives at studio 1-A. That's dedication right there.
