*NBC’s “Today” will try to revive its ratings with a look back to when it first turned the tide against rival “Good Morning America.”
On Dec. 30, former co-hosts Bryant Gumbel and Jane Pauley will return to co-anchor the morning show. The pair sat at the desk during the 80s, when it found itself second to ABC’s “GMA” in the ratings. Their combination is now credited with putting “Today” back on top eventually, according to Deadline.com.
Pauley left the show in 1989, replaced by the younger Deborah Norville. Gumbel left in 1997 to anchor a primetime newsmagazine on CBS. That did not go well.
Gumbel got back together with his anchors once before during “Today‘s” 60th anniversary, in January 2012; Pauley still appears on the show monthly for a segment in which she spotlights Americans over 50 embarking on new careers.
