The Tokyo Olympics are about to get underway, and it’s all hands on deck at NBC as Deadline reports that NBC News plans to have “Today” and “NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt” broadcast from the Japanese capital.

Next week, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, and Craig Melvin will join Guthrie to anchor the show from NBC’s outdoor set overlooking Tokyo’s Rainbow Bridge. 

Beginning Thursday, Holt will anchor his nightly news show from Tokyo on NBC’s waterfront set. The news host plans to profile members of Team USA and have breaking news from the Summer Games, with Japan’s ongoing struggle against COVID front and center.

She recently took to social media and announced that she is leaving WXIX-TV for a new opportunity at WCVB-TV in Boston.

“After 9 years, this will be my last week at FOX19. (So crazy and tough to say) I’ve loved spending my mornings with you, laughing with you and even embarrassingly crying with you, but most importantly sharing with you what’s important and happening in your communities,” she said on her personal Facebook Page.

“It’s bittersweet for sure- If you know me at all you know I’m a believer in being open to the unexpected and really just leaning in and going for it. I’m heading to to Boston, MA for an amazing opportunity at WCVB.”

Per the report, she will co-anchor the noon and 4pm news broadcasts.

Her broadcast career thus far has brought her to Missouri, Atlanta and Cincinnati.

Rooting Against Team USA?




Grant Stinchfield, a host on Newsmax, didn’t mince words as he claimed to be “happy” that Team USA Women’s Soccer and Men’s Basketball lost their Olympic openers in Tokyo.

The self-proclaimed ‘#MAGA Champion’ according to his Twitter bio said he was openly rooting against “Megan Rapinoe and her merry band of America-hating female soccer player.”

He continued by calling Team USA Men’s Basketball a “collection of whiny over-paid social justice warriors,” and a “bunch of anthem kneelers” who are “very hard to root for.”

Justin Baragona – a contributing editor for The Daily Beast – had to recap online.

Baragona pointed out that it wasn’t just Newsmax celebrating America’s defeat either.

Joe Scarborough: Teachers & Health Workers Must Be Vaccinated

MSNBC host Joe Scarborough wants President Joe Biden to create a policy that requires teachers and health workers to receive the vaccination against the coronavirus



The COVID-19 vaccine is a topic of discussion, although news networks can only urge their viewers to get vaccinated. 

Nonetheless, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough wants President Joe Biden to create a policy that requires teachers and health workers to receive the vaccination against the coronavirus, per The Hill.

“He does need to make the tough choice right now,” Scarborough said. 

“And he needs to start in his own political backyard. He needs to tell the teachers union that he’s going to require every public health care person to get it but also … every public school teacher needs to be vaccinated.”

The COVID-19 delta variant accounts for most new cases in the United States, with the majority almost entirely among the unvaccinated; Biden faces increased stress to get more aggressive in his administration’s mass vaccination efforts. 

“Our kids stayed home last year from school, and the results were absolutely devastating,” Scarborough said.

“So, we have the vaccines, and the president of the United States needs to say if you are a public school teacher or you teach at a public university, as a condition of your job, you have to get vaccinated.”
