Pauley, Gumbel to reunite on NBC's 'Today'

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The "Today" show is ending the year on a nostalgic note.

NBC says that former "Today" anchors Jane Pauley and Bryant Gumbel will join Matt Lauer for Monday's show. Gumbel left the morning program in 1997 after 15 years, and Pauley exited in 1989 after a 13-year tenure. They were co-anchors for seven years.

Pauley isn't a stranger to "Today": She returns each month for a segment that looks at Americans older than 50 who start new careers.
