NBC News backs away from Variety story that NBC is considering adding an hour, telling B&C that there are “no plans at this point.”
How much Today will there be tomorrow? According to a story this morning in Variety, the network is considering adding a fourth hour “that would extend the morning show until 11 a.m. and reshape the syndication market.”
But in a B&C follow up, an NBC News spokesperson is quoted as saying there are “no plans at this point.”
If it does decide to expand, NBC will have the physical facilities to accommodate it. The studio is undergoing a renovation and HD upgrade prior to Meredith Vieira joining next month.
