NBC’s venerable morning show “Today” is dipping into its past, bringing back two familiar faces from previous years. TVNewser reports that former hosts Bryant Gumbel and Jane Pauley will join current host Matt Lauer Dec. 30 as co-anchors for the morning.
“Gumbel and Pauley anchored the show together for seven years from 1982 to 1989. The pair reunited on the show — along with several other former anchors — when ‘Today’ celebrated its 60th anniversary last year. Pauley still appears on ‘Today’ monthly with a recurring segment about older Americans starting new careers,” the piece notes.
