This is Matt Lauer on the Today Show breaking the news on September 11, 2001.
This is what the Today Show was showing last year at 8:46AM, the time when the first plane crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11.
The Today Show and NBC took a lot of heat for blowing off the remembrance on 9/11 to talk to Kris Kardashian.
This is the Today Show this morning.
It appears that the Today Show has learned their lesson of last year. NBC produced a 4+ minute piece remembering the attacks of 9/11.
A lot has changed in a year at NBC. A new Network President, a new Today Show EP and a number of other changes. But, give the Peacock credit for not dropping the ball this time. Maybe, just maybe...NBC is moving the Today Show back in the right direction.
