‘Today’ Toasts Jim Bell

By Alex Weprin 

The cast and crew of NBC’s “Today” (including former co-anchor Meredith Vieira) held an on-air toast to honor executive producer Jim Bell today. Bell is moving to NBC Olympics, where he will lead the network’s coverage of the Games. NBC has the rights to the 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020 games.

“He will do a fantastic job at that, and we want you to know that you have been a great producer, and also a great friend,” Matt Lauer said.
