September 18, 2009, New York, NY, and Nashville, TN — NBCâ€™s â€œTodayâ€? and 615 Music have teamed up once again to introduce a new theme song, â€œYour Day is Today,â€? as part of a new promotional campaign. The new tune is a fresh, contemporary song sung by Paisley Van Patten. Of their longtime client, 615 Music President Randy Wachtler said, â€œTodayâ€™ is the preeminent morning program in America. We are always thrilled and challenged to write and produce the very best for NBC and â€˜Today.â€™â€?
The video that accompanies â€œYour Day is Todayâ€? incorporates the showâ€™s principals, includes behind-the-scenes clips, and centers on the people and atmosphere that make â€œTodayâ€? the exceptional morning program for which it has long been acclaimed.
Wachtler adds, â€œWe are honored to again have been asked to create original music for the â€˜Todayâ€™ show.

NBC News pioneered the morning news program when it launched â€œTodayâ€? over 56 years ago, with Dave Garroway as host. The four-hour live broadcast provides the latest in domestic and international news, weather reports and interviews with newsmakers from the worlds of politics, business, media, entertainment and sports. After more than 48 years of the standard two-hour format, the third hour was launched in October of 2000, making â€œTodayâ€? the only three hour national morning show broadcast. The fourth hour launched in September of 2007. The program is unparalleled in its ratings dominance in the morning news arena, serving as Americaâ€™s overwhelming favorite for 11 consecutive years.
