Eagle At Princess To Serve As Show Backdrop

May 17, 2017

NBC’s Today show co-hosts Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb are set to broadcast their U.S. morning show from Bermuda tomorrow [May 18], and the US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle has arrived at the Hamilton Princess in advance of the filming, where it will serve as part of the backdrop during the live broadcast on Thursday.

The show will be live to air from the Hamilton Princess, and the Eagle — a tall ship who had already planned to be in Bermuda around this time — adjusted her schedule slightly to accommodate this opportunity with the well known American morning television programme.

Kathie Lee and Hoda will shoot two one-hour shows in Bermuda for the 10am EST slot of the Today show; the first will broadcast live on Thursday, May 18th, and a second taped show will be shot on Thursday to air on Friday, May 19th.

The BTA previously said, “The Today show is the top-rated U.S. morning television programme among the valued 25 to 54 year-old demographic; the Bermuda Tourism Authority has been successfully targeting travellers under 45-years-old in its consumer marketing strategy over the past three years. The 10am hour of Today typically attracts approximately 2.5 million daily viewers according to ratings agency Nielsen.”

  4. Warlord says:

    Thank you BTA and OBA.This will be televised to millions of households.Priceless.

    • Eyes wide open says:

      Had nothing to do with them. Stop being a Troll.

    • Bill says:

      No need to thank the OBA and the BTA. They had absolutely nothing to do with this.

      No brag, just fact!

      But knowing the BTA they will lay claim to it, pat themselves on the back and pay themselves large bonuses.

      • Micro says:

        They wouldn’t be filming here if it wasn’t for the AC

      • ConcernedBermudian says:

        You do realize the BTA are the ones that actually brought the Today show to Bermuda right? Seriously, they did.

      • wahoo says:

        I think that NBC and the Eagle are here because of the AC which was an OBA initiative. I could be wrong…..

      • Politricks says:

        They had nothing to do with it?

        Nothing at all?

        So who is responsible for all of this then may I ask?

      • St. David's says:

        Are you saying all of this activity and excitement just spontaneously happened? Good old Bermudian luck?

  5. Jobs for Bermudians should come first. The 2,000 jobs promised must have gone to all outside workers. What about Bermudians?
    Jobs should be oba’s priority but it is not.
    Democracy under oba IS DEAD!!

    • wahoo says:

      You are right…who you gonna call? Global hue badada… dada… ddddada. Tourism creates jobs for crying out loud, where did you study economics you political minion?

    • rumsoak says:

      Gwaaaaaan wit you

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      What ARE you babbling about?

      • Eyes wide open says:

        The same thing you will babble about after the election. Wait and see!

    • Jeff says:

      If you’re out of work, why? there are thousands of jobs here for those who want them.

    • Just the facts says:

      Seriously Betty/Backbone/Lavern, do you ever give it a rest? Trolling is a full time job for you. I hope you get compensated well and they give you good insurance as levels of negativity as high as yours have been shown to cause serious illnesses…cancer even. Take a day or two off for your health, mental and otherwise.

      (And BTW, here’s a PSA: we get it, you are trying to make a point but you’ve gone overboard and have become obnoxious and banal and now people just feel sad for you. “Poor Betty, she doesn’t know any better.”)

      Don’t waste your time replying as I actually have a life. Oh, and I’m going to be busy watching Hoda and Kathie Lee showcase our awesome island home to millions of people around the globe! Exciting times in Bermuda!
