Norville on Gifford: “She’ll Be Great”

By Chris Ariens 

From Diane Clehane‘s Lunch column in FishbowlNY:

I asked Deborah — who, in her former life, sat next to Bryant Gumbel on Today’s couch — for her take on the news Kathie Lee Gifford will be joining the NBC morning show to host the fourth hour. “I called her Monday morning to congratulate her,” says Deborah. “I think it’s terrific that television bosses are finally recognizing the fact that people watch people they know on television. No public relations campaign, marketing blitz or low cut sweater is going to change that. I think it’s terrific that she was invited to return to television. She’ll be great.”
