New York, NY (AHN) - NBC's "Today" show will be broadcasting live from
Cuba on Tuesday with stories on the country's political future and how
it's been affected by the U.S. embargo. It took 18 months before
arrangements were completed so host Matt Lauer and the rest of his team
could make the trip.
AP reports Jim Bell, the executive producer of "Today," as saying, "It's
always timely to go to Cuba. There's always news there. Being there is
news in itself."
However, Bell said it's not expected that "Today" will get an interview
with Fidel Castro, who hasn't been seen publicly in 10 months.
