Super Bowl: Savannah Guthrie Set for NBC's Pre-Game Interview With President Obama

Savannah Guthrie

"Introducing Idina Menzel, ... what could possibly go wrong?" she cracked before introducing Billboard's Breakthrough honoree, in reference to John Travolta's Oscars snafu.

The 'Today' co-anchor will chat with Obama from the White House during the network's pre-game show.

Savannah Guthrie is set to sit down with President Barack Obama before the Super Bowl, NBC announced Monday morning.

The Today co-anchor and former NBC News White House correspondent will chat with the president live from the White House this Sunday during the network's pre-game show, which begins at 12 p.m. ET.

Additional segments from Guthrie's interview with Obama will air the following Monday morning on Today.

The announcement follows the president's tradition to chat with whichever network is airing the Super Bowl that year. NBC's previous two pre-Super Bowl interviews with Obama (2009 and 2012) were conducted by Matt Lauer.

Guthrie and Al Roker will anchor Today live from Block 23 in Phoenix, Ariz., this Friday and Saturday.

Before the big game between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, Idina Menzel will sing the National Anthem and John Legend will perform "America the Beautiful." Katy Perry will take over the University of Phoenix Stadium for the Super Bowl halftime show with Lenny Kravitz.
