The Today correspondent daughter of former President George W. Bush is "in the mix because she is a favorite among viewers and staffers and she has already filled in for Kathie Lee every time she’s been away,” a source tells People. The source added that “nothing has been determined about (Gifford's) replacement. She’s here until April anyway. But it’s looking like Jenna." The Daily Beast also pegged Hager as the frontrunner, adding that her selection would be a "big blow” to Carson Daly, "who had been eyeing the job." The Daily Beast notes that Hager and Hoda Kotb already have chemistry on- and off-screen. ALSO: Kathie Lee Gifford reportedly tried to resign a year ago, but NBC executives begged her to stay.
