Hoda Kotb (part 2) Forum Club of the Palm Beaches
Meet NBC's Hoda Kotb. You can catch her daily "dishing the dish" with Kathie Lee Gifford as part of the extended "Today" show. After all, girls DO just want to have fun, cocktails in hand, while they take a look at the lighter side of life. But don't be fooled. There's a lot more behind the woman who has covered everything from war-torn Burma to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Kotb, who has been with NBC since 1998, is the author of Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and Kathie Lee.
She has covered a wide variety of domestic and international stories for NBC as well as numerous human-interest stories and features. She co-anchored an MSNBC special on race, “Shades of Hope … Shadows of Hate” which was reported from Birmingham, Alabama at the former site of a Klan bombing. In Burma, Kotb was led by rebel soldiers to report the story on 12-year-old twin warriors who were said to have mystical powers.
