Christie to guest-host 'Today' later this month

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie will guest-host the "Today" show later this month. NBC announced Tuesday that Christie will be a co-host for an hour of the May 24 show, which will broadcast from the Jersey shore as part of its "Great American Adventure" road trip. A location for the appearance hasn't been finalized. The road trip segment involves the show's anchors traveling together to five U.S. destinations in a single week. Christie has stressed the Jersey shore's importance as a tourist destination in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Christie joins Sarah Palin and Laura Bush as other political figures who have co-hosted an hour of the morning show. The Republican governor is running for a second term. A spokesman confirmed Tuesday Christie had undergone weight loss surgery in February.
