Kathie Lee and Hoda bid farewell to NYC and say “hey y’all” to Charleston, S.C.! The fourth hour of TODAY takes the show on the road and broadcasts from the College of Charleston’s Cistern Yard on Thursday, May 2 and Friday, May 3. Kathie Lee and Hoda encourage viewers to practice their southern hospitality and join them on a Lowcountry adventure. View photos on our Facebook page.
While in Charleston, Kathie Lee and Hoda will explore the Palmetto City’s charming sights with a tour of City Market and a carriage ride through the historic streets. The ladies searched for the perfect “southern gentleman” just after they perfected their shagging technique with Shag Champion Bucky Dudley (the shag = the famous Carolina beach dance). KLG and Hoda participated in favorite local pastimes including window box design and soul food sampling, and they met some of the local wildlife from the South Carolina Aquarium. Viewers got a special southern treat with a performance by musical duo Johnnyswim, married couple Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano. The Chucktown Trippintones and the College of Charleston’s Gospel Choir also performed.
Additionally, correspondent Sara Haines looked at Charleston’s rich military history with a visit to Joint Base, and she also checked out the Center for Birds of Prey, an avian conservation center.
The fourth hour of “Today” will broadcast two shows from the College of Charleston’s Cistern Yard in Charleston, S.C. on Thursday, May 2. One taped show at 8 a.m. ET and one live show at 10 a.m. ET. Fans and viewers are encouraged to watch the show tapings with Kathie Lee and Hoda. To be a part of the outdoor audience, fans in Charleston should arrive no later than 7 a.m. outside the Main Gate at Porter’s Lodge on George Street.
