The co-host revealed some of her daily rituals and shared her schedule. Not everyone would be happy to manage time the same way.


According to Page Six, Kathie Lee Gifford is a 'well-oiled machine' who claimed not needing any help to be up and running earlier than most people.

The 64-year old, who's known for hosting Today's fourth hour with Hoda Kotb and sharing early morning inspirational tweets, revealed she always wakes up early in the morning.

The TV legend recently shared, on the Today show on Tuesday, some of her early morning rituals and how most of her days start around 2 am.

“No, I’m not a snoozer. I don’t even have an alarm. I’ve been doing it for… since the 1800s before there were alarm clocks!” the host explained to Sheinelle Jones.


Jones, who was visibly shocked by the claims, asked if the legendary television host is ever worried about oversleeping, which isn't the case.

Today explained how the host manages her time during the earliest hours and her way of incorporating faith into the routine.

Gifford revealed that she always wakes up at the same time, even on vacation, claiming that the first thing she does is grabbing her dog, going downstairs, and preparing some coffee.

"And I do about an hour of scripture study - Bible study, and devotional study. Before I start my devotions, I tweet. Every time I read a scripture that I love, I try to get it down to 140 characters," she admitted.


The host claimed that she doesn't like breakfast, adding that she waits until 7:30 am, after arriving at the studio, to have her first meal, usually Quaker Oats oatmeal with a tablespoon of peanut butter.

Gifford began co-hosting the fourth hour of the Today show with Hoda Kotb in 2008. Before joining NBC, Gifford co-hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee for 12 years from 1988 until her departure in 2000.
