Hoda Kotb Is a Southerner | Biscuits & Jam Podcast | Season 4 | Episode 8

In this week’s episode, Sid Evans, Editor-in-Chief of Southern Living Magazine, chats with Hoda Kotb, one of the anchors of ‘The Today Show’ on NBC and an author. She was raised in West Virginia while visiting family in Egypt. Unfortunately, her father passed away while she was in college, which of course took an emotional toll, but the lessons she took from the experience has helped her to move through her life successfully. Before her time covering world events, she spent time as a local news reporter in various markets and, in more recent years, she’s also become an author. In fact, her time working in New Orleans local news led her to fall in love with the town, which recently led to a cover story in the April issue of Southern Living in which Hoda shares the best of her old hometown.
