This morning “Today” dedicated most of its broadcast to its 60th anniversary celebration, kicking off with an introduction from Matt Lauer:
The program featured congratulations — and a proclamation — from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, President and First Lady Michelle Obama and a cadre of celebrities (Tom Hanks delivered the birthday cake), along with a number of retrospective packages, such as this one:
- Turness: 'NBC News is Proud to Have David in the Important Anchor Chair of Meet the Press'
- 'Today' Show Hosts Share Prom Pictures
- Megyn Kelly Bets David Gregory Isn't The Only One Being Analyzed
- Brian Williams to Jimmy Fallon: 'Let's Be Clear... I Have Never Said Hippety, Never'
