‘Today’ EP on ‘Early’ moves: ‘We’ll take it seriously, as we have with each of the previous changes there’

With the news of an overhaul at CBS’s morning show, here’s more from Brian Stelter‘s New York Times story on the revamp, from a cross-town rival.

Jim Bell, the executive producer of “Today,” said in an e-mail message that if the CBS changes materialize, “we’ll take it seriously, as we have with each of the previous changes there.”

“There will be skeptics, of course,” Mr. Bell said, “but as we’ve seen with the successful and improbable pairing of Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb at 10 a.m. you have be willing to take a chance if you want to stand out in morning television.”

By the way one month from today, NBC’s “Today” will mark 16 years as the undisputed #1 morning show.
