NBC News’ “Sunday Today” celebrated its third anniversary Sunday, April 14, 2019.
- The show, launched April 17, 2016, replaced the Sunday morning edition of “Today.”
- Instead of the normal news and lifestyle content in the “Today” format, “Sunday Today” is designed to compete against CBS’s venerable “Sunday Morning” with a format that emphasizes longer form packages and interviews.
- Hosted by Willie Geist since its launch, “Sunday Today” was originally taped in Studio 1A, the home of its weekday big brother — but with the windows covered.
- The show would evolved into using the windows more prominently — and also had a one week stint on the old “Megyn Kelly Today” set.
