NBC’s Willie Geist Keeps It Real, Uses Subway


By Eddie Scarry Comment

He’s still Willie from the block. NBC Today‘s Willie Geist has settled into his new cushy gig as co-host of the show’s 9 a.m. but the promotion apparently hasn’t gone to his head.

Many hosts and anchors in the network TV business opt for a car service to and from work. We’re told, however, Geist was spotted this morning at 10:30 a.m. riding the 1 train in New York City somewhere by 50th St. He was seen toting an iPhone and an unidentified book.

Geist on the dirty subway system. Just like a regular Joe.

We’re happy to see that Geist hasn’t forgotten the little people.
