‘Handful’ Of NBC Employees Opt Out Of Rio

Savannah Guthrie of the Today show, who is 44, announced yesterday that she was pregnant with her second child and will not go to Rio de Janeiro this summer for Olympics coverage because of concern over the Zika virus. The network said she is one of a “small handful” of NBC employees who will forego the trip, but did not specify what it meant by a “small handful.” Guthrie is the first employee to drop out of the trip to identify herself publicly.
