'Today' To Hit Secret Locations
Apr. 20, 1998
NEW YORK (AP) _ NBC's ``Today'' host Matt Lauer and his overworked travel agent know where he's going next week. Just about no one else does.
Television's top-rated morning show is sending Lauer on a one-week road trip starting Monday. He will report from a different location outside the United States each day. Three of those appearances will mark the first-ever American television transmissions from each site.
Co-host Katie Couric and other ``Today'' on-air staffers won't know until each morning's show where Lauer is going to be, executive producer Jeff Zucker said.
``We decided that if we were going to go on the road, we had to do something different, special and fun,'' Zucker said.
