The song seemed completely out of step with the futuristic mission of informing the world with state of the art communications technology (“Gonna take a sentimental journey”). But the selection resonated with the World War II veterans who had come home from Europe when it was a hit. They were the people heading out the door to work each morning and propelling the country forward through an era of rapid economic expansion. Like the song, Garroway had an unhurried approach on the air. He moved gracefully around the complex Today set, always while speaking directly to the viewer at home.
But Today soon proved it had value simply by being on before everyone else. On the morning of February 6, 1952, King George of England suffered a coronary thrombosis and died in his sleep. m. m. in New York. The passing was too late for the early editions of the morning newspapers. Only one hour and fifteen minutes from airtime, the producers of Today scrapped their planned segments and devoted the entire program to reports on George’s death. Garroway and the NBC News team reviewed the monarch’s career and discussed how his twenty-five-year-old daughter Elizabeth would succeed him on the throne.
The program would have cameras stationed wherever news was happening that a host could go to live. There would be fresh sports reports, weather forecasts, interviews with newsmakers, and reviews of the newest books, movies, and plays presented right in the studio that morning. Television news programs of the time were primitive—or “rotten” as Weaver described them. They were mostly composed of a staff announcer reading the latest headlines and wire reports, accompanied by still photos or newsreel footage.
