MTP Makes Way For Super-Sized Sunday “Today”

By Chris Ariens Comment

The Today show is super-sizing this Super Bowl Sunday and will air from 9-11amET/8-10amCT. Meet the Press with David Gregory will air live following “Today” at 11amET/10amCT.

Sunday’s “Today” show will feature weekday anchors Meredith Vieira, Al Roker and Ann Curry live from Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, while Matt Lauer will broadcast live from the White House lawn. Later Sunday, Lauer interviews President Barack Obama live during NBC’s Super Bowl Pre-Game.

Roker gets to Florida first, with Thursday’s reports originating from Tampa’s historic Ybor City. Vieira arrives for Friday’s show; NBC’s Tiki Barber gets a VIP tour of the stadium from his twin brother, Tampa Bay Buccaneer Ronde Barber and for some apparent reason Weekend Today co-anchor Jenna Wolfe will be live for Saturday’s Today show from Universal Studios Orlando.

What, Busch Gardens wasn’t available?
