Mayor Robertson visits NBC Today Show

February 10, 2010 | Uncategorized

At 4am Tuesday morning, Mayor Gregor Robertson made his way down to the International Broadcast Center near Coal Harbour to visit Matt Lauer and the Today Show on NBC, and do a live interview on America's #1 rated morning show.

The Today Show, which reaches an estimated 5 million viewers each morning, is broadcasting outside the International Broadcast Center this week, with Burrard Inlet and the north shore mountains as a backdrop. The mild weather in Vancouver has been the focus of several media stories, and was a popular topic on the Today Show.

"Now, when it comes to the weather, much has been said," said Matt Lauer. "It's beautiful here, in fact, it's probably too nice for the taste of some people. They're having quite the heatwave by Canadian standards."
