William and Mary students, faculty, staff and alumni will get a taste of national television Wednesday when NBC’s “Today ” show broadcasts live from Williamsburg.
The popular morning show will be just steps from campus when co-host Matt Lauer broadcasts from Colonial Williamsburg’s reconstructed Colonial Capital at the eastern end of Duke of Gloucester Street. Lauer will be joined by TV personality Al Roker, who will engage the spectators along DoG Street, including an expected contingent of William and Mary faithful.
Friends and parents can tune into NBC affiliates from 7-9 a.m. to perhaps catch a glimpse of hundreds of members of the Tribe family proudly sporting the green and gold.
The broadcast is coming to Virginia as part of the "Today" show’s coverage of the upcoming presidential election. Virginia has been tagged as one of several battleground states in the campaign.
If you are planning on attending the broadcast, spectators are encouraged to arrive early.
