    Welcome to The Today Show guide, on January 14 1952 "Today" began it's journey as TV's longest running morning news program on NBC, went on the air. It aired at 7:00 A.M. (Eastern Time) as a 2-hour news and information show. For many years it was a 2-hour program from 7:00 to 9:00 ET, until NBC expanded it to 3 hours (7-10 A.M. Eastern Time) on October 2, 2000. On September 10, 2007 a fourth hour was added to the show. Today was the first of its genre when it first signed on with host Dave Garroway. The show successfully blends national news headlines, in-depth interviews with newsmakers, lifestyle features, other light news and gimmicks (including the presence of the chimpanzee J. Fred Muggs as the show's mascot during the early years), and local news updates. It has spawned several other shows of a similar type, including ABC's Good Morning America, CBS's The Early Show, and the Canadian series, Canada AM. The show is filmed and produced at studio 1A in Rockefeller Center, New York, just across the street from NBC headquarters at the GE Building. The studio is located right next to the street and many times the hosts do the weather or other events from outside. Today was the brainchild of Pat Weaver, who was then vice-president of NBC. Later, he became president of the company from 1953 to 1955, and then served as chairman of the board for another year. The show is currently hosted by Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. Al Roker does weather updates and Natalie Morales reads news headlines. Popular former weathercaster Willard Scott still appears on the show daily doing the 100th birthday announcements he first became famous for in the 1980s.moreless

    The U.S. Presidential Inauguration has been broadcast on national television since the 2nd Inauguration of Harry S. Truman in 1949. The Presidential Inauguration of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States took place on January 20th, 2009. The inauguration ceremony was telecast on FOX, ABC, NBC and all major television and news networks. It is believed to be one of the most watched events of all time by a global audience. Following the events of the 2008 Presidential campaign, the inauguration was particularly noteworthy for several reasons. Perhaps most notably, Mr. Obama was the first ever African American voted into office. Secondly, his election represented a political culture shift because he was the first man born after 1960 elected President. Fox political analysts and others believe he won the Presidency by breaking away from the status quo of Washington politics and demonstrating a fresh approach to the many problems facing the nation, including two wars and a downturn in the economy. Several events accompanied the inauguration, including a train ride recreating the route taken by Abraham Lincoln, concerts, parades, church services and ten post inaugural balls, many of which were available for the public to watch online.moreless

    Two of entertainment history's biggest stars were united in this special 1960 television broadcast. Signaling the end of a string of shows hosted by Frank Sinatra, ABC pulled out all the stops when it booked the king of rock 'n' roll, Elvis Presley, to be the final guest. Presley's versions of "Fame and Fortune" and "Stuck on You" are terrific, but the duets between Sinatra and Presley, "Witchcraft" and "Love Me Tender," truly steal the show.moreless
