>> good morning, guys. hair and makeup room, one of my favorite rooms here at "today." spend two and a half hours every morning in here because i love the bronzer, if you can't tell. we have to give them a medal because they see us every day at our worst and make us tv ready. you know, our loyal viewers, we do four hours of live programming every day. we have two makeup rooms, one downstairs on the concourse and this one right here with the lovely kathie lee and hoda have their morning meeting.
