Guess Who’s Anchoring “Today” on Tuesday?

People have always said told me that my mom would be a great television host.  That’s why I’m excited that she’ll be guest-hosting “Today” this Tuesday morning!

She told Breitbart News:

“I see this as a good opportunity to bring an independent, common-sense conservative perspective to NBC. We’re ‘going rogue’ and infiltrating some turf for a day.”

Also, Katie Couric happens to be filling in for Robin Roberts next week on “Good Morning America.”  When Breitbart News asked her about this match-up, Mom was her usual self.

She said, “Game on.”

In other words, make sure you tune in.  She’ll be a totally unique presence, won’t she?  (Just try to think of anyone else like her on television!)

I, for one, cannot wait to watch.  I know she’s going to be awesome!

Have a great weekend, everyone!! Leave a comment below to receive weekly updates, including the best of this blog. You may also enjoy:

    Thanks for the heads up…I normally NEVER watch the Today show, but won’t miss it on Tuesday. Wish Sarah were on all week. Love her.

  • Debbie Mangham

    SOOOO glad to see your mom on one of the “big three” networks!!! I generally watch GMA, but on Tuesday, will be switching to TODAY!!! Whoo Hoo!

  • Denise

    Bristol I have prayed for your family through these last 4 + years… excited to watch your mom on Tuesday… just a reminder to you that you are wonderfully and marvelously made by the God of the universe…:) Denise

  • Debbie

    SO glad to see your mom doing this on one of the “big three” networks! I usually watch GMA in the mornings, but this Tuesday, I will definitely be switching to TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • James Farnsworth

    Thanks for letting us Palinistas know! DVR set, now waiting until Tuesday.

  • Maggie May

    Yikes! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll be watching Katie.

  • David Allred

    Thanks for the headsup!!!! Can’t wait.

  • speppers69

    Bristol….does this mean that she is giving up the political life for tv life? Oh, I am praying that it isn’t. We NEED Sarah Palin in politics….preferably as president. This country needs her. I’m hoping that going on the Today Show is just to reach out to people she wouldn’t normally be able to talk to. So that those people can see what WE see.

  • bellagrazi

    Sarah Palin is great at everything. It’s that competitive spirit that drives her. I’m sure she will excel at this, as well. And she will definitely be a unique presence, Bristol. Your mom has a big personality. She’s wonderfully larger-than-life. I’m so excited about this! Palin vs Couric – GAME ON!

  • aaron krohn

    Bristol, I’ve loved all your posts, and all your other endeavors in your young life thus far!!
    You have a beautiful happy sunshiny son, now over 4 years old!!
    Surely, in your travels Outside, you’ve experienced much!!
    And seen more.
    You’ve seen a nation hurting by unemployment figures never under 8%, gas prices at $4.00 and more…….much more…….and you’ve seen many homes foreclosed, welfare cases rising in number!
    You’ve heard and watched the President apologizing for America, refusing to drill for American (Alaskan!!) oil, or build pipelines, unable to create jobs, formulate a budget, let alone pass one, widen the racial divide instead of narrow it, and so much more horrific “accomplishments”!!!
    And you KNOW your mother better than most!!
    You know the TRUTH of what she accomplished as Mayor, as AOGCC Chairperson, and as Governor!!
    You’ve seen the force of her presence in front of 1000′s of energized Americans!!
    You know she’s sold more books, got higher approval ratings than any other Governor, has the hearts of conservatives everywhere!!
    And you KNOW in YOUR heart she, your mother, is the ONLY one who can beat Barack Obama in November!!!
    This Today Show appearance is FANTASTIC!!!!
    But come next January 20, 2013, being a talk show host, or a speech maker, or a FB Note writer, or a “private citizen”, does NOT, as she so eloquently said in her Convention speech” have “actual responsibilities” attached to it!!
    Only the President can sign Executive Orders……or treaties, formulate and prioritize budgets, ask Congress to declare war, choose future Justices for the Supreme Court or other courts, hand-pick her Cabinet and staff, be a Commander-in-Chief our military would be proud to serve under, and SHE would NEVER apologize for this most exceptional of nations!!!
    PLEASE, Bristol, don’t let your mom be JUST a talk show host……howver fabulous a one she will be this Tuesday!!!
    Please urge her to reconsider!!!
    Mitt will NOT beat Obama!!
    No one will……or can…..except Sarah!!!
    Bless you, Bristol, and your son!!
    Love your blog!!!

    • aaron krohn


      Your son is THREE……not 4 as I stated!!

      Sorry, Tripp!!!

      Take your time to grow!!!

      Enjoy your life!!!

  • Jan

    We will be watching The Today Show on Tuesday. TEAM PALIN!!!!!! all the way.

  • Henry Avery

    This is great, one of us walking into the valley of the shadow of death, unafraid. Love your mom and her steadfast conservative ways. The libs must be chewing their nails to the nubs about your mom being there, I won’t miss it

  • John

    Thanks Bristol, Keep shinning, You give me true hope for the next generation…Let me guess, you haven’t received your call from Obama yet!!! :-) Much respect for you and your Family … Your Mother is awesome … will set the DVR…haven’t watched for many years but will make sure I don’t miss this. Thanks again and Godspeed to you and the Family.

  • http://facebook Mike price

    I hope this isn’t a set up by the liberals to try and make her look bad in some way. I don’t trust them any further than I can throw them. Sarah is wise to them and can handle herself but liberals play dirty. She and I agree so much on politics. She reminds me of Reagan so much!

    • Jan

      NBC cannot throw anything worse at her than Chris Wallace and Bill O’Reilly. The only fair ones to her on Fox was Greta, Sean,& Eric

  • MP

    Hi Bristol- That is exciting news!!!! I’m normally disgusted with the liberal three- but because your Mom is going to be on there- I WILL be tuning in. Please add me to your mailing list. And Goooooo Sarah! By the way, she inspired me, I am the mayor in our town!
    God Bless,

  • Rebecca

    My son, who’s 7, and I just watched your mom show ‘Sarah Palin Alaska’. All of it on Netflix. We both have fallen in Love with Alaska and your family. Now when he sees a picture of your mom he says, ” Hey, look there’s Sarah!” Cute…right. I’m a wife and mother of four and deeply appreciate all that your mother does for us Americans. God bless the Palin’s!!

  • Diane Kristy

    As I’ve said from the start – you may choose to ignore Sarah Palin but you will do so at your own risk.

    She’s made for this kind of gig. It will be fun to watch the unflappable one.

    Hope she’s got a pocketful of her unique and sparkly comments!

  • Maleena

    EXCITED!!! /0/
    The Today Show will get their highest ratings yet! BTW Katie who???

  • Luc

    I’ll certainly watch her on the Today show but would have much rather been working for her on the campaign trail. Sigh.

  • Kalena

    Bristol, I just know that your mom is going to charm the liberals who really don’t know the REAL Sarah. Remember how she stopped by the set of “The Five” a few weeks ago? I have never seen Ed Bechel so smitten in all my days. She absolutely charmed him in just those few magical minutes. He has never been the same since. He now says very nice and respectful things about her.

    You mom is doing exactly what needs to be done so we can see her in the Oval Office in the future, whether it be really soon, or sooner rather than later. She is my favorite famous person on the whole planet right now and has been so since she made her speech in Dayton.

  • Sue Lynn

    I’ll be watching our Ma Ma Grizzly and making rating history together!!!

  • jan page

    I can’t wait to watch your Mom on The Today Show. She will be great. She is so beautiful and has a great personality and a great sense of humor that she will knock them off their feet. Go Sarah!

  • WM

    I’d rather see her anchor the Oval Office!

    • Andrea Broussard

      Amen, MW!!

    • myj

      Not in a million years!!! LOL President Obama will be re-elected in November with the help of the Republican Congress and Paul’s Budget plan… War against women, is a big step for the Dems to take over the House and Senator in November…

  • Terry Spears

    That is the only time that i will watch NBC.

  • Millie


    Thanks for letting us know I will be watching it to. I am so excited!! She
    will send the ratings through the roof. No contest between Sarah and Katie.
    Sarah will do a wonderful job as guest co-anchor. I am really looking forward
    to seeing her Tuesday

  • Glynis Ritter

    That’s great!!!!

  • http://C4P senator20526


    We at C4P are supporting you and your family. I know your mom will be great on The Today Show. Keep up the good work on this blog.

  • LisaJ

    I work nights and am usually sound asleep when the Today show is on but I’ll wake up just to watch your mom kick some network butt!

  • Rosali Elzig

    I will be glad to watch it. She will do a great job. Her presence will say it all.

  • blackbird

    Your mom is a natural, I will defiantly see it one way or the other.

    The Quilt

    As I faced my Maker at the last Judgment, I knelt before the Lord along with the other souls. Before each of us laid our lives, like the squares of a quilt, in many piles. An Angel sat before each of us sewing our quilt squares together into a tapestry that was our life. But as my Angel took each piece of cloth off the pile, I noticed how ragged and empty each of my squares was. They were filled with giant holes! Each square was labeled with a part of my life that had been difficult, the challenges and temptations I was faced with in everyday life.

    I saw hardships that I had endured, (which were the largest holes of all). I glanced around me. Nobody else had such squares. Others had a tiny hole here and there, other tapestries were filled with rich color and the bright hues of worldly fortune. I gazed upon my own life and was disheartened.

    My Angel was sewing the ragged pieces of cloth together, threadbare and empty, like binding air. Finally the time came when each life was to be displayed, held up to the light and the scrutiny of truth.

    The others rose each in turn, holding up their tapestries. So filled their lives had been. My Angel looked upon me, and nodded for me to rise. My gaze dropped to the ground in shame. I hadn’t had all the earthly fortunes. I had love in my life, and laughter. But there had also been trials of illness, death, and false accusations that took from me my world as I knew it. I had to start over many times.

    I often struggled with the temptation to quit, only to somehow muster the strength to pick up and begin again. I had spent many nights on my knees in prayer, asking for help and guidance in my life. I had often been held up to ridicule, which I endured painfully; each time offering it up to the Father, in hopes that I would not melt within my skin beneath the judgmental gaze of those who unfairly judged me. And now, I had to face the truth. My life was what it was, and I had to accept it for what it had been.

    I rose and slowly lifted the combined squares of my life to the light. An awe-filled gasp filled the air. I gazed around at the others who stared at me with eyes wide. Then, I looked upon the tapestry before me. Light flooded through the many holes, creating an image. The face of Christ. Then our Lord stood before me, with warmth and love in His eyes.

    He said, “Every time you gave over your life to me, it became my life, my hardships, and my struggles. Each point of light in your life is when you stepped aside and let me shine through, until there was more of me than there was of you. Welcome Home My Child”

    May all our quilts be threadbare and worn, allowing Christ to shine through.

    In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, I have overcome the world…
    John 16: 33

    • Free4Now


      Thank you so much for blessing us all with this. If I could tell you how much it means to me – right now, right at this time – you would be amazed once more at how miraculous our God is…

      Thank you, Bristol for the strength you lend to others. You have a God-given gift, young lady, which you are using so incredibly.

      God Bless

      Thank you, Blackbird. The Quilt made this old firefighter shed a tear.

    • Maleena

      WOW! I so needed this. Thank you :)

      May I share this with others?

      • blackbird

        Yes, please do Maleena, these are not my words, I have only passed them on. Thank you Maleena.

        • Maleena

          Thank you :)

  • Andrea Broussard

    I never watch those morning shows, but will tune for your mom. Giving the Momma Grizzly higher ratings than the “perky one” will give me great pleasure. :)

  • Megan M

    OMG I am soooo EXCITED to watch Sarah host the Today show!! She will crush Katie Couric in the ratings! I will definitely be recording it while I go to work tomorrow. GO SARAH!

  • Larry

    Awesome! Will have to watch! God Bless Your family, have a great week!

  • Chris in Ottumwa

    Your mom will be awesome! I don’t usually tune in to those morning shows but this would be one of the rare exceptions!

  • Deb Heisler

    Got my DVR set, but will definitely watch your mom live, Bristol! I can hardly wait to see her bring class, to that less-than-classy morning show. Praying that those on the left watch, in amazement, as she destroys the mistaken opinion they have of her, thanks to the lamestream media!

  • Douglas Bates

    YES I well watch today !!!!! Love your mother and hate the way the liberals on the networks slamed her in the past. Loved the tv show you and your family had on about Alaska. God bless you and your family.

  • Frederick Lang

    Awesome Bristol,

    Almost too good to be true! What a wonderful opportunity for your mom for one thing but more importantly, an opportunity to set a few things right, not only regarding the smears, accusations and falsities that have been hounding your mom in particular but presenting the common sense values of conservative thought in general. Don’t know how much she will be able to expound upon but with her charm, wit and intelligence she just may win over some people who would not normally be persuaded by the mainstream liberal media.

    God bless your mom and you Bristol.

  • Jose

    I will be great. She`s the best!
    God bless your mom and your family, Bristol

  • Donna

    Game on, indeed! I will definitely be tuning in to support your Mom!

  • sarah simpson

  • David Dempsey

    I will be watching the Today Show on Tuesday for sure.

  • Mrs. B

  • Sarah Johnson

    I , too,will be shifting to the TODAY show on Tuesday. Thanks, Sarah

    Hope the little snipit Katie gets her panties all out of shape.

  • Brett&Kyle’sMom

    I’ve long since grown tired of the tripe Matt & Ann spew but will relish this Tuesday’s show!!! (probably will even DVR it!)

  • Wayne R

    Never had much of a chance to watch morning TV, guess that is because I am at work at that time of day.

  • Michael Sipe

    I will be up and watching! Hate to give up Fox and Friends, but to see your mom host a show, I would even give up “The Five.” Oh, that’s right, I TVO The Five!!
    I really can’t believe NBC would turn over the air to the momma bear. I will set my alarm!!

  • Lisa

    O.M.G. I LOVE your Mom and regret that I have a 9 am meeting with management that I cannot reschedule, but I will be watching until 8 am. Please send her my love and tell her TO GET HER OWN SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Rick Patel

    Gov. Palin should not demean herself by appearing with barf-inducing hacks like Lauer & Curry. They are the lamest of lamestream shills.

  • Ali Garrett

    so i saw this last week, & now it’s Monday night & am so thankful that i love your posts so much to read them twice.. feeeeeww.. yeah i didn’t miss it & will be in such a Sarah Palin Power mood tomorrow..

  • Judi

    It is 8:05 a.m. on Tuesday and I have been watching the Today show since 7:00 a.m. – Where is Sarah? :(

  • Judi

    Guess I must have missed her! How did that happen?

    • Millie


      I don’t know what Today show you were looking at but she was on
      starting at 7:am through until 9:am. She had alot of fans outside.
      When they were outside you could see them. She did a wonderful
      job and I know her family is really proud of her. She looked
      absolutely beautiful!!

  • Diane Kristy

    Please provide a link when you can. (TV is in for repair)

  • kathy sovetsky

    She did a great job.

  • Nita L

    Indeed Bristol, we’ve been remade. That day over 2,000 years ago. Any one can think, or then, thought they took Jesus’ life. He laid it down for us, taking all sin with Him. He’s our last chance. God may be loving, patient, and kind, but this is it. He came to earth in man form to save us from who else..ourselves. We MUST tell everyone, no matter what they say, that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one gets to the Father except through Him..JESUS. Mistakes?? He said..”Go, and sin no more” We’ll be tempted, and are. Let Jesus keep leading our lives. I’m so proud of you Bristol. Now look at your Momma..May the Lord have mercy on her hosts..haha!! Psalms 109:8

  • daisy51

    I think both you and your mom are awesome ladies… I applaud you both!! Keep being who you are… :)

  • silverlakemom

    “I have never seen anyone so uncomfortable in this position on national TV”

    LOL. I guess you must have missed Al Sharpton on MSMBC.

  • Millie

    You have to be joking!!!! You have to answer the questions they
    throw at you. Otherwise she joined in the conversation on the subject they were talking on and did a great job.

    She was one of four anchors and she looked absolutely beautiful
    and confortable!!!!

    And Gjoy she has been on National TV so much that is why is

    She was one of four anchors and she looked absolutely beautiful!!!

  • speppers69

    What a hate-filled person you are. After reading the many comments you have left on Bristol’s blog…you have nothing but hate inspired rhetoric. If you hate Sarah and Bristol Palin so much as you claim to…then why bother coming to Bristol’s blog. Does it make you feel better to say nasty things about people you don’t even know? It shows more about the person YOU are then the attempts to hurt Sarah or Bristol. It’s pretty sad and pathetic, really. No wonder our country is in such disarray. Because some people didn’t listen to their mommy tell then that if they didn’t have something nice to say…then one shouldn’t say anything at all. You’re NOT convincing anyone that Sarah Palin is who you are trying to claim she is. But we sure know who YOU are.

  • Kathy

    I agree with you speppers69…if you don’t like someone why would u follow them on a Blog, Twitter etc……Anyways, Bristol, you and your mom are pretty awesome in my book!
