Where have 'Today' show viewers gone?

(Continued)

NBC announced this week that Willie Geist, an engaging and popular member of MSNBC's "Morning Joe" team, will join "Today" as a co-host of the 9 a.m. hour and occasionally appear earlier.

"What I loved about the show were the hosts, reporters and the stories," said Miriam Sajecki, a marketer from Staten Island, N.Y. who has watched "Today" for more than 20 years. "It was always delivered in a friendly, engaging and informative manner. Some of that has changed in that I miss the chemistry that was displayed with the prior hosts ... and some of the stories 'Today' was known for. It has evolved into forgettable reports without giving me the important news and educational stories."

Still, Sajecki is a loyalist. "I will continue to watch the 'Today' show and wake up to it every weekday," she said.

NBC needs devoted fans like Sajecki to turn things around.

It will take some time.
