Dear Ada,

I watch the Today Show every morning while I am getting ready to go to work and I really liked the series of "Where in the World is Matt Lauer". I was a little bit disappointed that going everywhere around the world he did not go anywhere in South America where I am sure he could find very exotic and beautiful places that most people in North America don't know of.

Best Regards,

Diana, New York

Dear Diana,

You're right about South America's abundance of beautiful and exotic places. For what has become one of Today's trademark series, Matt has broadcast live from remote locations around the world. In 2001, Matt's travels brought him to Machu Picchu, Peru, and in 2002 he visited Rio De Janeiro in Brazil, as well at the Amazon. This year, on day 5 of Where In The World Is Matt Lauer, Matt was asked, "Of all the places you've visited over the years, what would be the one place you would return to for a family vacation?" He mentioned 3 places he would return to. The first one mentioned was Machu Picchu. He called it "a magical place". I'm certain his travels will bring him back to South America where he will continue to share with us, and the rest of the viewers, the splendor and magnificence of South America and its people.

Dear Ada,

My name is Phillip from Atlanta, GA. My question is directed to anyone who can tell me why Pluto is no longer a planet. As a viewer of the show, you've never let me down before.

Thank you,

Phillip Conner, Atlanta, GA

Dear Ada,

I'm ok right now with life, love, and work. I'd like to know how to be part of the studio audience, specifically on June 19th, when Bon Jovi is scheduled to appear. Thanks for your help.

Hi Louanne,

Concert days are our favorite here at the office - some of the best and most popular music artists perform right in our backyard!  It is also a great chance for our viewers to get a front row seat to some of the summer’s biggest acts.  If you are coming down to the plaza to see it in person, there are no tickets necessary but you will want to get here early.  Fans line up sometimes hours before the plaza opens at 7 a.m. to get a spot up front.  Performances are usually between 8:30 - 9 a.m., but you also might catch rehearsals if you get here early.  Hope to see you in the crowd for Bon Jovi!
