For a brief instant Rutland appeared on the Today Show on Friday, March 14. Lori McLaen and Jen Christianson traveled to New York for a few days on the town. Friday morning they were in the Today crowd holding a Rutland sign. Jen was next to a woman who practically broke down the fence to hug Meredith when she came near. Although Jen missed hugging Meredith, she did get a good photo of Ann Curry who was in for Matt last Friday. They did not make it on the first hour so they can’t be seen on the Today Show website but they have TiVo to prove they were there!
