Fear not, Hoda Kotb fans; she’ll be continuing to deliver her spirited performances on “Today” for some time to come.

Kotb has re-upped with NBC News with a long-term contract that will keep her on “Today,” where she appears alongside Kathie Lee Gifford during the morning show’s fourth hour.

Under the renewed deal, Kotb will also continue to appear on other NBC News programs, including “Dateline.”

According to Capital New York, which first broke the news of Kotb’s renewal, the TV personality had been pursued by other networks and shows, and had been sought for ABC’s daytime yap-fest “The View,” which would have included a role with ABC News.
