HomePop ConfidentialCelebrityToday Adds Willie Geist For Third Hour Jillian Bowe September 25, 2012 2 Comments Morning Joe's Willie Geist is heading to The Today Show. The New York Times is reporting Geist will serve as co-host for the show's 9 am EST time slot, and also serve as a stand-in for Matt Lauer. Fans of Morning Joe, don't fret. Geist will continue at the hit MSNBC show during the 6 am EST hour, but will discontinue his hosting duties at Way Too Early. Geist's promotion comes just in time, as his contract was set to expire at the end of the month.
