Today Show Changes
« on: April 05, 2006, 04:52:02 am »
I have a morning ritual, I drink my coffee, browse the forum and watch the Today Show. Today Katie Couric announced that she is leaving the end of May to go to CBS evening news. The surprising thing to me is that I never really liked her but yet I felt a little sad that she would be leaving. The whole show seemed to work because of the whole team of four. Katie, Matt, Al and Ann. I wonder who will replace her? I hope its Ann Curry. Two years ago when I visited NYC, I stood outside with the crowd and got to see them all in person. Forgot my sign though.

The other fun fact is that I only watch NBC news in the morning. If I watch news any other time of day, it will be FOX news.  ;)

Ban her Ovi!

I catch a bit of it in the AM when I'm getting ready to go about my day sometimes, though I'm mostly indifferent to her departure. I've been hearing jokes on Leno about it too, and he seemed pretty sure it was going to happen, so I kind of figured it would. Ah well. I like when TV shows change things up. Leno is getting replaced by Conan O'Brien in 2008, and even though I like Leno, I look forward to that happening.

I was thinking about this.. I never actually watched the Today show, I just have years upon years upon years of memories of it playing in the background as I got ready to go off for school. It didn't take long to find out about these people just to listening to the TV as I ate breakfast. I literally grew up with these people every morning, yet have only watched the show a handful of times. I guess it's  sad that another part of my childhood is going away, regardless of how much I actually watched it. It just always felt like one of those things that was always there, and would always be there.

They just announced today that Meredith Viero (sp?) from The View will be taking Katie's spot. I just don't think it will feel right. I wish they would move Ann Curry there and find someone else for the news.

Meanwhile Katie is going to CBS replacing Bob Sheffier. Although I'm Happy for Katie I gotta say I'm gonna miss Bob Sheffer. he made the Job his own very well in the Time he was there.

Rather wasn't bad but their styles were diffrent.

Dan Rather was "This is the news, Here!"
Bob Sheefer was "This is the news, Something to think about..."
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.
