NBC’s "Today" show premiered on this day in 1952.


NBC built a "Today" show studio inside the RCA Exhibition
Hall on West 49th Street and dubbed it "the nerve center of
the planet."

Dave Garroway, the host, knew, on the very first day, that he
was making history. In the first few minutes, he stood up to
take viewers on a tour of this strange-looking newsroom.

On this day in 1954, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio were married
in a civil ceremony at San Francisco City Hall, where they were
mobbed by reporters and fans. Monroe had apparently mentioned
the wedding plans to someone at her film studio and they leaked it
to the press. The couple spent their wedding night at the Clifton
Motel in Paso Robles, California and later honeymooned in Japan
and Korea. The marriage only lasted nine short months.
