For ABC, this was a much more successful morning news series than A.M. America, which had lasted the first ten months of 1975. ABC looked at one of its affiliates, WEWS in Cleveland, and admired the station's very successful news/talk series called The Morning Exchange (1972-1999). Network programming president Fred Silverman oversaw ABC's using The Morning Exchange as a model for their new program.
Today the show is anchored by Charlie Gibson, Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts. Tony Perkins gives weather reports throughout the morning. The show is usally in a battle for #1 with rival morning news show "Today"
