However, since the reopening of New York City and the rest of the country, the group met up again at the one year mark of their first reunion to reflect on the past year and share their experiences.

At the New York restaurant Fresco by Sotto, the group met up to talk about how they coped with the pandemic, especially given circumstances surrounding family.

Savannah and Hoda opened up about hesitantly coming back together to work with a very limited team, before everyone else was able to join in some capacity. "I knew things were better when I could sit on your lap," Savannah said to Hoda amid the rest's laughter.

Al talked about the major family milestones in his life, particularly his daughter's wedding, which he regularly posted about on his social media and which he invited the rest of his Today family to.

"It was like a coming out party, it was really terrific. And I was happy to pay for it," the popular weatherman hilariously said.

They also spoke about how their children and spouses dealt with the pandemic and the easing of restrictions, especially around the usage of masks and public gatherings.
