‘TODAY’ premiered nearly 7 decades ago in 1952. The iconic morning news show has featured many notable hosts and anchors over the years. Take a look back at ‘TODAY’s biggest names then and now.

TODAY is a morning news staple for millions of Americans every single morning. The anchors and hosts provide the latest on what’s happening in the United States and the world. The show first premiered on Jan. 14, 1952. Through the years, TODAY has had some of the best journalists at the news desk.

One of the most recognized TODAY co-hosts is Katie Couric, 64. She first started at TODAY in 1989 as a national political correspondent. She became the main co-host in 1991 after Deborah Norville left. Matt Lauer, 63, became her co-host in 1997. She left her position as TODAY co-host in 2006 after 15 years.

Since she was on a weekly morning news show, viewers were very invested in Katie. In her earlier years at TODAY, Katie rocked a short, coiffed hairstyle that was incredibly popular in the 1990s. During her later years at TODAY, Katie grew her hair out and became a blonde.
