TV show description:
First airing in 1952, this daily NBC morning news program features national news, weather, features, and interviews with celebrities, politicians and other newsmakers of the day.

[…] TV show description: Hosted by Brian Williams, this news program is produced in the Rockefeller Center’s Studio 3B — the same space as NBC Nightly News (which Williams anchors), and formerly The Today Show. […]
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.
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?
