I imagine they’ll stay on the weekend. NBC has been doing that with their First Look team the past year.  They probably have the afternoons off and with no Sunday shows they probably can leave at 9AM. Willie Geist, Ayman Mohyeldin, Yasmin Vossoughian and Jose-Diaz Balart all do six day work weeks.

Dylan works Sundays too alongside Willie.

Plus there is precedent for taping the third hour of Today, seeing as Megyn Kelly Today was taped on most Fridays, and Kathie Lee and Hoda have been known to tape Friday editions. That's the most feasible option. But if they go the replacement route you're right, the bench is stretched thin. Unless they go with Kate Snow, Kristen Welker or Hallie Jackson (the latter two being incredibly valuable on the WH beat) or Dave Price/Janice Huff (they'd have to also work 6-7 day weeks unless they left WNBC which they wouldn't). I for one would like to see Sunday Today canceled and have Weekend Today revert to being on both Saturdays and Sundays. But I guess if it means Willie stays off the weekday show as much as possible, I'm fine with him getting Sunday as a consolation prize.

Totally true, Sunday Today with Willie Geist should be cancelled because it's turning NBC into a boring show for viewers each morning. Make Weekend Today return to Sunday mornings PERIOD. And this is my point predictions to fix the problem

There is no way Dylan will sustain working 7 days a week long term. Same goes for Sheinelle working 6 days. They'll have to have a day off during the week on a permanent basis (as Chuck Todd does) or dump their weekend duties all together & stick with the third hour during the week. They can easilly get somone from The Weather Channel to take Dylan's spot and someone from MSNBC to cover Sheinelle on Saturdays.

Maybe TODAY can axe weekends and (if our predictions) Sheinelle and Dylan could join FOX News for better viewers to understand their opinions

Kinda surprising that TWC OCMs are still appearing on Today after the Bryon Allen acquisition.

I imagine there’s still a bit of news sharing. From what I’ve seen on social media several NBC O&O meteorologists or reporters are appearing to report on local weather.

I see Maria Larosa from the weather channel came today

She's not with TWC anymore. She left TWC in September.

 

 

Looks like she's mainly been doing freelance work for NBC on the Today Show and on WNBC since then.

I figured so. No way would NBC use a TWC OCM after they sold them off.

Any idea as to why she's leaving?

Now that Natalie won't be co-hosting Access Hollywood anymore, I wonder if she will go back to The TODAY Show fulltime?  

We want her back

The article and quotes are carefully worded. It say she will be likely leaving Access.  However they said this:

 

Quote

“Natalie has not been fired. She is and will continue to be a huge part of the NBC family. Our new EP will start next week.”

At the very minimum it means she will be with NBC until her contract runs out. However if she let go of Access I’d imagine she is looking at other avenues.

Kind of sad to see the Today Show become a shadow of it's former self 2013+, with Katy Lee & Megan Kelly gone the show should stick to 7-9A ET, and bring back elements of the old format.

Also, wish they'd utilize the plaza audience more, I've been to Rock Plz myself and audience engagement really lacks compared to GMA'S audience.

I've noticed some weird quirks about the weather hits during Today:

1.  During the 7:00-7:30 half hour, the weather hit is around 7:17.  During the 7:30-8:00 half hour, the weather hit is around 7:35 AM, just 5 minutes after coming back from a local station break.  Why is this?  Doesn't it put a strain for the meteorologists at the local NBC affiliates since they're not evenly spaced out?

2.  Why does Al Roker NOT say "here's what's happening in your neck of the woods" during the 7:00-7:30 half hour?  It seems so weird for him to say something along the lines of "now here's your local forecast" instead.

On your second point they usually say "we'll get to your local forecast in the next 30 seconds" because there is a 30 second network ad that is suppose to play before the local covers. The rest of the wx hits toss straight to the locals.

Is there a significant financial or marketing gain by going "national weather --> ad --> local weather" (in that order) vs. "national weather --> local weather --> ad" during the 7:00-7:30 half hour?  Seems very weird to me.
