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." READ MORE

Should Ryan Seacrest Replace Matt Lauer on The Today Show?

According to the Wall Street Journal, NBC executives have approached American Idol host and purveyor of all things Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, about possibly becoming Matt Lauer’s successor at The Today Show.  Talk about a head scratcher.

I grew up watching Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel anchor NBC’s Today. I enjoyed Katie Couric and Matt Lauer’s time together. After Couric left for the CBS Evening News, I welcomed Meredith Vieira’s addition to the morning show. When Vieira decided to leave and Ann Curry took over, the transition was seamless.  I wouldn’t watch Today with Seacrest as a primary host. I’d just spend more time watching Morning Joe or replace Today with Good Morning America.
