After Sochi, ‘Today’ Looks to Keep Up Olympic Momentum

today in sochiWith the Olympics coming to a close, the “Today” show crew is headed back to New York. Before they left Sochi, the anchors looked back at their favorite moments from the games, including the USA vs. Russia men’s hockey game that ended in an overtime shootout and Matt Lauer and Al Roker‘s attempt at the double luge.

This week, the show is looking to keep the momentum going: “Today” has interviews slated with several Olympic athletes, including gold-medal figure skating pair Meryl Davis and Charlie White, who will perform on the ice rink at Rockefeller Plaza. “Today” will also debut an enhanced fan experience on the Plaza, letting visitors register ahead of time when they plan to come to the show.

The show will also launch “Love Your Selfie,” a series of reports on body image. As part of the reports, the show will collect selfies and post them on the “Today” website, and the anchors will examine their own body image insecurities. The series will kick off with Jenna Bush Hager interviewing Michelle Obama.
