Carson Daly: News Anchor

Most TV watchers probably know Carson Daly as the host of NBC’s “The Voice,” or in his longtime role as host of MTV’s “Total Request Live.” This morning however Daly put on a new hat: news anchor. Daly filled in for Matt Lauer as co-anchor of “Today.”

Daly had been filling in as a guest co-host during the third hour, which skews heavily toward entertainment and lifestyle segments, but this morning was the first time that he served as a news anchor during the 7-8 AM hour.

Update: Daly had filled in on Saturday, July 20 alongside Chris Jansing, though this morning was the first time sitting in on the significantly more popular weekday edition.
