Jenna Bush’s ‘Today’ Show Bow

NBC News has announced Jenna Bush Hager‘s first ‘Today’ show spot will air next Friday, Sept. 18, as Matt Lauer and Al Roker bring the show to Texas.

The “Everything is bigger in Texas” themed-show will broadcast live from the new Cowboys Stadium two days before the Sunday Night Football match-up between the Cowboys and New York Giants.

For her first piece, Hager will profile Dalton Sherman, an 11-year-old motivational speaker from Dallas who made headlines across the country last year after giving an inspiring speech at his school’s pep rally.

Matt, Meredith, Al and Ann will welcome the former first daughter to the show a day earlier on Thursday, Sept. 17 in Studio 1A.
