With tonight’s Powerball jackpot now topping half billion dollars, the morning shows went all out with big money bookings today. “Good Morning America” brought in New York Lottery spokesgal Yooolaaaanda Vega while the “Today” show got an exclusive with the most recent big money winners: Brian and Mary Lohse who won the $202 million Powerball jackpot in September. “They are with us for their first national interview,” said Matt Lauer. Only it wasn’t, really. The Lohse’s sat down for an interview with “CBS This Morning” earlier in the week in a story that aired minutes before their live appearance on “Today.”
