Swine Flu Cancels Today Show’s “Vacation”

Next week Matt, Meredith, Al and Ann were planning to hit the road for “Today Takes a Vacation.” But the coverage of the swine flu will keep them in New York.

The show was to originate from San Antonio on Monday, Key West on Tuesday and a “surprise” location on Wednesday. This trip was planned after “Where in the World is Matt Lauer?” was shelved due to the concerns that a global hopscotch wasn’t suitable in this economy.

NBC had said the trip was meant to “explore the down-home beauty of the United States and partake in accessible vacation activities in each location.”

The Texas trip was to include an interview with former First Lady Laura Bush while Jimmy Buffet was to perform live during the Key West stop.
