How does the 'Today Show' air live portions of the show in EST and PST?
It would seem that since the main portion of the Today
Show (7-10am) goes off the air just as the west coast version
starts, they will sometimes re-do the beginning of the show live
for the west coast. This happens if news headlines change from the
east coast version. Then, they just splice in the recorded features
and continue on.
