The Sunday edition of NBC News' "Today" premiered on September 20, 1987. Five years later, on August 1, 1992, the Saturday edition made its debut, expanding the broadcast schedule of the "Today" franchise to seven days a week. The program is broadcast from Studio 1A in Rockefeller Plaza in New York. The weekend broadcasts continue the "Today" tradition of covering breaking news, interviewing newsmakers, reporting on a variety of popular-culture and human-interest stories, covering health and finance issues and presenting the latest weather reports. In addition, the show offers visitors to New York City a chance to observe firsthand the workings of a live television broadcast with its windowed studio on Rockefeller Plaza. Interaction with the crowd outside the studio is a major part of the program. Dee Dee Thomas is the executive producer of "Weekend Today."
