    One thing that my raises suspicions that they are together is that the jointly appear at each others book launches and signings. I can understand if they show up to a book store together in NY or D.C. as that's where they live and frequently visit for work. It can be treated as a joint promotional effort. But when they started appearing in places the require significant travel/out of the way together on weekends seemed a bit much for coworkers.

    Then there was the issue of Joe and Mika being down at Mar a Lago on New Years Eve meeting with President Elect Trump. They claim it was so they could talk to him and persuade to get an interview but the fact that it was a holiday and at an exclusive resort seemed odd. Surely they could have been lobbying to get an interview during the many conversations Joe says he has with PEOTUS and Mika has been seen visiting Trump Tower.

    If I'm wrong I'm sorry but some of their behavior seems like they are a couple.

    I think (don't hold me to it) I read that some of the agreements that NBC has to provide a certain amount of news content per week. Keeping KLG and Honda under the news umbrella would meet that goal as they talk about current events and interviews.

    Indeed, Scarborough de facto auditioned for Imus' spot on WFAN morning when Morning Joe was simulcast on WFAN for a week. Eventually Joe and Mika landed a 10-12 show on 77WABC that fizzled out.

    I haven't heard that but even if it is true, can it not stay under the news division but detached at 10am and under its own banner? I was just trying to make the point that it really is a separate show and didn't understand why everyone felt that it needed to be attached to the mothership by moving to 9am if Today's Take is a goner.

    I never understood why Hoda and Katie had to be under the "Today" banner to begin with. From day one it was effectively a separate entity.
