KEY WEST, Florida Keys — NBC’s “Today,” America’s top-rated morning show, is set to broadcast much of its show from Key West Tuesday, July 28, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. ET/PT, with Matt Lauer and Al Roker. For broadcast times in other regions, check local listings.

The special broadcast from the “Conch Republic” is a facet of “Today Takes a Vacation,” a series that began today, where the show examines traditional domestic vacations and explores the beauty of the United States.

Segments in Key West range from exploring the Florida Keys’ indigenous cuisine to shopping, treasure and even some of the island’s quirkiness. The Keys’ own “Howard Livingston and the Mile Marker 24 Band” is to entertain with island music.

In addition to his duties with “Today,” Roker is also to use Key West as a location to anchor a new early morning show for The Weather Channel on Tuesday, July 28. Beginning at 6 a.m. ET, “Wake Up With Al” is co-hosted by Stephanie Abrams and explores all aspects of the day’s weather.
