We’re not the only ones celebrating an anniversary. Today the Today show turns 63. On January 14, 1952, the now popular morning show debuted.
Today’s founding host Dave Garroway — who had the gig from 1952 to 1961 — started it all with “Well here we are.” Hey, things were a bit more subdued on TV back then.
“The very first good morning of what I hope and suspect will be a great many good mornings between you and me,” Garroway continued. “Here it is, January 14, 1952, when NBC begins a new program called Today and, if it doesn’t sound too revolutionary, I really believe this begins a new kind of television.”
You have to credit Garroway for nailing that part; Today really did change TV forever.
