Willie Geist to Anchor New Sunday Edition of NBC’s ‘Today’

2 March 2016 7:23 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don’t bother Willie Geist on Saturdays. Starting in April, that will be the one day of the week he will have off.

Geist will take on a new role as the anchor of the Sunday version of “Today” on NBC, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The move appears to be aimed at making the Sunday broadcast dovetail more readily with another NBC News weekend stalwart: “Meet the Press.”

The New York Post was first to report the move. NBC has yet to announce the shift. Geist is expected to continue his other roles during the 9 a.m. broadcast of “Today” during the week and on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

The Post report cited an executive who billed the revamped Sunday broadcast as being more “thoughtful and reflective,” something that would cover politics, popular culture and social trends, and give Geist a chance to present things in his own voice. »
