What do you get when you mix Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Ann Curry, Natalie Morales, Princeton University Crew and Lake Carnegie?
A feature on NBC’s “TODAY Show,” which will feature Princeton University during a segment called “Today Takes On” on Thursday May 10 between 8 and 9 a.m. EDT, University Spokesman Martin Mbugua said.
All four of the show’s hosts visited Princeton on April 26 to get a lesson in competition from members of the Princeton crew team.
The hosts learned to row and then showed their "talents" in a race against some Tigers on Lake Carnegie, led by coxswain and Princeton University sophomore and member of the university’s heavyweight crew team Jason Kopelman.
Kopelman and Kelly Pierce, a senior member of the Tigers open women's crew team, helped train Morales and Roker at the Class of 1887 Boathouse before the race.
The Princeton rowers were given a major disadvantage during their competition with the TV stars…tune in on Thursday to see who wins!
