What’s going on this morning?

Cuatrocinco45 has the guest-list for Tuesday’s TODAY Show.

The Governor will apparently be interviewed during the 7 AM hour and will co-host the 8 AM hour:

“Palin is coming Tuesday as a live guest in the 7 a.m. hour for an interview on the political news of the day. Then she will co-host the 8 a.m. hour and take part in some of the show segments,” a rep for NBC tells E! News.

That means we’ll not only get to hear Palin’s thoughts on the current events, but she’ll take a seat at the anchor desk alongside Matt Lauer and Ann Curry as well.

But a rep for NBC insists they have wanted Palin on Today for sometime:

“They’ve been trying to make this happen ever since the show (and Matt) visited her at her home in Wasilla back in 2008. Their decision stems from the fact that she knows politics, she’s a hockey mom and she’s had considerable TV experience in the last few years,” NBC explained. “Today feels she’s very comfortable talking about a wide range of topics that will resonate with morning TV viewers.”

Interestingly, Lauer and Palin were listed as two of the best ten communicators back in 2009.

Who wins between Kansas and Kentucky tonight?
