NBC to Add 4th Hour to 'Today' Show?

Amid rumors that the New York based “Today” show will add a fourth hour to their morning routine, a spokesperson for NBC says the final decision will be announced early next year.

“There is a strong possibility” of the expansion, NBC News spokesperson Megan Koft said, declining further comment.

However, insiders reveal that the hour will be added next September, at the start of the 2007-2008 TV season, and the move would be coupled with the cancellation of the low-rated soap opera, “Passions.”
