‘Today’ Staffers Moved to Tears Over Hoda Kotb, Cyndi Lauper, Sara Bareilles Video

“Today” show anchor Hoda Kotb, along with singers/songwriters Sara Bareilles, Cyndi Lauper are joining forces as part of the “Today” show’s “Shine a Light” outreach campaign.

With the song “Truly Brave,” a mashup of Bareilles’ “Brave” and Lauper’s “True Colors,” the trio hopes to raise money for the fight against pediatric cancer. The “Truly Brave” video features young cancer patients from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. We’re told several crew members and staffers were moved to tears in the studio and control room when the video debuted on the show Thursday.

‘CBS Sunday Morning’ Posts Highest Ratings in 20 Years

Osgood“CBS Sunday Morning” kicked off 2014 with a bang: the Charles Osgood-hosted show delivered 6.53 million viewers on January 5, its largest audience in nearly 20 years (since 1/23/94) and its sixth-largest audience since the advent of people meters in 1987.

As usual, the show was the top-rated Sunday morning newscast among both total viewers and the demo. Compared to the same day last year, “Sunday Morning” was up +8% in total viewers and +7% in the A25-54 demographic.

Last week’s show featured Rita Braver‘s interviews on yoga with Hilaria and Alec Baldwin, Ben Tracey‘s profile of Sara Bareilles and Tracy Smith‘s interview with Mary Matalin and James Carville.
