As snow crews work hard to clear the white stuff from Boston’s streets and sidewalks for drivers and pedestrians, the Faneuil Hall crew is preparing for an entirely different set of visitors. The TODAY show will be leaving Rockefeller Plaza this week and making their way up to the Hub on Friday, February 15th. TODAY hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie will broadcast their news program live from Faneuil Hall on Friday, giving Bostonians a chance to watch one of America’s most celebrated TV shows right in our own backyard.
