Willie Geist on Today Gig: "I Feel Complete Opportunity"
Morning Joe regular Willie Geist is excited about joining Today's 8 am EST hour this Nov. 12. Here's what he told Broadcast & Cable:
"I feel the opposite, I feel complete opportunity," he said in a phone interview. "When I go over there, which is a lot, to the Today show, and spend time with the producers and Matt and Savannah and Al and Natalie, there's no head-hanging. No ‘oh no, we lost our lead.' It's let's fight, let's get it back. That's part of what attracted me to it. I think everybody understands this is a moment of opportunity maybe a moment of a little evolution. I don't look at it at all as walking into the number two show, I look at it as walking into the iconic number one show that will again be the number one show."
