Willie Geist’s Sunday Today Show Launches April 17

By Chris Ariens Comment

The new Sunday Today show with Willie Geist will launch April, 17, TVNewser has learned.

Geist, who has been a part of the Today show since 2012, will now helm what an insider tells us in a more thoughtful news show, in line with the other Sunday programs.

Geist has been very involved in the new-look show which will continue to originate from Studio 1A.

The hour-long Sunday Today airs at different times in different markets: At 6 a.m. in San Diego and Denver; 7 a.m. in Chicago and Los Angeles; 8 a.m. in Boston and Washington, DC and 9 a.m. in New York City. The goal is to provide a more seamless transition to Meet the Press which is the lead-out program on most NBC stations.

Page Six first reported on the new show earlier this month.
