Jenna Wolfe has always been the go-to girl for health and fitness on the Today show, but now it’s official. She has been named Today’s first lifestyle and fitness correspondent, the program reported. Though she’ll be leaving her fans on the weekend show, we’ll be seeing her way more during the week—she will also serve as an NBC News national correspondent. How’s that for girl power?
“Anyone who has seen her health and fitness segments on Today, as well as her reporting across all of our platforms, knows what a brilliant expert she is and how passionate she is about the topic,” said NBC News President Deborah Turness. We completely agree, and we can’t wait to see what she has planned!
Look out for Jenna on September 19th, when she will officially take on her new role with an interview and yoga session with yogi Hilaria Baldwin. Also coming up? Her Pick-A-Part series, in which she’ll dole out easy tips to tone different body parts, will kick off on the 29th.
