Well it seems as likely as anything else at this point. Yesterday NBC cut the Soap Opera Passions (RIP Timmy) to add an extra hour to the Today Show, and now it appears that they are courting Tiki to join the show.
Who will be front and center during the fourth hour has yet to be determined but Capus confirmed that the network has reached out to retired New York Giants running back Tiki Barber, who has proven himself an adept broadcaster through appearances on Fox News Channel and ESPN.
"We'd love to have him," said Capus. "He's obviously enormously talented."
Apparently the new Fourth Hour will look a lot like the Third Hour and be much lighter. I of course never watch the Today Show, so I have no idea how this will play out. NBC seems to have the desire and funds to attract Tiki. With Tony back in the MNF booth it looks like this might be the direction he's heading.
