Every fall for the past several years, the cast of Today including Matt Lauer, Meredith Vieira, and Al Roker, host the famous Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York.
In the summer, Today football analyst, former NFL running back Tiki Barber, and correspondent Natalie Morales host the Macys 4th Of July Fireworks Spectacular.
Although both Macys shows are iconic and fun to host, Barber says the Fourth Of July crew gets the better end of the deal.
Because of the warm summer weather and unbelievable fireworks, Barber says his Today team has more fun even after the show.
He says, Matt and Meredith go home drained to eat turkey. We go home and have a few beverages to celebrate!
He speculates that Lauer, Vieira, and Roker are a little jealous of his July 4th job, but hes open to switching holiday hosting duties sometime.
