In Sandy’s Wake, NBC Expands ‘Today,’ Plans Primetime Special

The “Today” show’s four hours are dedicated to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy as the superstorm continues to move inland. Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie are reporting from studio 1A while Al Roker, Natalie Morales and more than a dozen NBC, CNBC, and Weather Channel correspondents contribute. New Jersey Governor Chris Christie was a guest on “Today” and the other network morning shows. During a news conference yesterday, Christie criticized the mayor of Atlantic City for telling his residents to hunker down, rather than evacuate. “Today” also talked with the mayor who called Christie’s comments “reprehensible.”

NBC News will produce a primetime special anchored by Brian Williams at 10pmET/PT with the latest on the power situation and what’s left of the superstorm.
