Hoda Kotb made a rookie mistake on the Today show Friday morning. In an effort to showcase the Samsung watch phone she dialed the number from the cell phone. While the noble idea was good, the only problem is when the phone started working it revealed her number on live national television. Kotb’s co-host tried to save her from certain disaster, but Kathie Lee Gifford’s warnings were too late and the host revealed the digits to the camera.
“My personal phone has exploded,” tweeted Hoda Kotb on her official Twitter account Friday after the show. According to some reports she received over a 1,000 emails from the live shot.
Unfortunately Kotb’s number is traveling fast on the Internet too. People have taken to record the live video and post it on YouTube for the world to see. Which leaves Hoda no choice but to find a new number unless she wants to answer all those calls from the fans.
Take a look at Hoda Kotb making her error on the Today show. The number is blocked out as it was the recorded segment aired in the Rocky Mountain region.
