    Kiss Matt goodbye & bring Ann Curry Back. NBC you just gave ABC, GMA a new viewer. Sorry Al I will miss you but Ann was the best the Today show had to offer.

    I can remember Barbara Walters’ first stint with Dave Garroway on ‘Today’, and it wasn’t as the ‘Today Girl’ in the ’60s. It was in January 1952, and she was a very young 22-year-old ‘Newsreader’. She wore a dark long-sleeved sweater while casually slouching forward on her desk, leaning on her elbows. At one point an incredulous Garroway demanded that she remove the gum from her mouth!

    I was watching.

      Fred,
      Didn’t Dave also have her do weather reports at the beach?
      I remember eating breakfast before school and seeing this.
      Am I mos-remembering?
