January 14, 2012 marks the 60th anniversary of the premiere of The Today Show, the NBC morning show that not only ushered in a new era of broadcasting, but literally changed the way millions of Americans started their day by providing a window into the world of news, information and entertainment... all before 9:00am. In the course of its 60-year history, The Today Show reflected the changing attitudes of American society, set the pace for the evolution of TV news coverage and introduced viewers to some of the best communicators in broadcasting history.

We’ll look back at the history of The Today Show when Stephen Battaglio joins us in our second hour. Stephen’s new book, From Yesterday to Today: Six Decades of America’s Favorite Morning Show, not only shows why The Today Show remains as vibrant today as it was when it first premiered, but also provides intimate portraits of many of the people who came into prominence because of Today, including Dave Garroway, Hugh Downs, Jane Pauley, Bryant Gumbel, Katie Couric and Barbara Walters.

Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen will join us in our first hour for an expanded edition of This Week in TV History that will include a look at the 40th anniversary of the death of
Pete Duel
, as well as the impact that had on the production of the popular Western series Alias Smith and Jones. It’ll be a full program as always… we certainly hope you’ll join us.
