7:03 am
seven decades and share a few special surprises along the way. including this. check this out. you are looking live at the iconic empire state building it's decked out in "today" orange in honor of our anniversary. >> we flipped that switch yesterday it was so much fun. but we want to begin with a look back at today's timeline. it was 7:00 a.m. on this day right now, 1952 when "today" first went live from the rca exhibition hall on the street level of rockefeller center. dave garway was the host of the first broadcast. before dave, most stations just showed test patterns during this hour. >> 13 years later, "today" would be broadcast for the first time entirely in color. the famous nbc peacock logo kicking off the show every morning. >> let's fast forward to 1974, barbara walters became the first female anchor of the show.
7:04 am
she started ten years earlier, working as a writer and reporter. despite her big interviews, breaking stories she covered, she was not allowed to be cohost until the mid 70s. >> eight years later bryant gumble joined becoming the first african-american host. >> and 1994, bryant and katie, opened up the plaza to the beloved crowd, it was a staple of the show's early days. in a memo leading up to the debut, pat weaver wrote that the goal was for america to be well informed, amused, to be lightened in spirit and in heart and to be reinforced in inner resolution through knowledge. so look at us, 70 years later, that is still our goal. >> every morning for 70 years. and on that note, let us start this morning with our top story. the massive winter storm that's going to impact tens of millions over the days ahead, all across the eastern half of this country. >> of course, al roker is our man in the know. so good to see you on our 70th.
7:05 am
>> good morning. wish we had better news. first of all, let's talk about the cold. wind chill advisories, warnings in the northeast, new england, chills as cold as 40 below. tomorrow morning feels like minus 35 in burlington, 5 in pittsburgh, washington d.c. is going to feel like 6. now here comes this big storm 51 million people looking at. this we're looking at snow already coming out of the dakotas spreading as far south as central iowa. and this is going to push down to the south. look at this. we're talking anywhere from 6 to 9 inches of snow. some places could pick up to 12 inches before it's all over. then that system dives to the south and travels up the coast. to the east of i-95, heavy rain and wind. to the west, major ice storm and snowstorm developing. that ice storm could cause major
7:06 am
problems, could be crippling effects, ice totals into the carolinas and all the way down to far northern georgia could have major, major issues. and then again, heavy snow stretching from the spine of the appalachians all the way to interior pennsylvania, new york, and on into new england with highest totals up to two feet. if this system drifts anywhere 25 to 30 miles to the east, that snow line will will drift to the east as well. and we could be looking at major problem as far as new york and the i-95 corridor. either way, strong winds and flooding along the coast with gust officials 50 miles per hour. >> all right, al, we'll come back to you in a few minutes. also this morning, amid the coast-to-coast scramble that surrounds surging covid cases and the relentless demand for testing, the biden administration is not finding support for work place vaccine mandate from the supreme court. gabe gutierrez has the latest on this one. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning.
7:07 am
the decision came down 6-3 with the six conservativives on one side and the three liberals on the other. but a separate vaccine mandate for health care workers will stand. this morning opponents of covid vaccine mandates celebrating a major victory in the nation's highest court. >> if allowed to move forward, this mandate would have dire and far reaching consequences particularly in rural america. >> reporter: the supreme court blocking the biden administration vaccine mandate or test mandate, conservative justices writing the occupational safety and health administration, osha, can't regulate public health. president biden arguing if his administration hadn't put vaccine requirements in place we would be experiencing a higher death toll from covid-19. >> we were doing this to keep americans safe and get americans
7:08 am
back to work. >> reporter: james crocker said he was worried a third of his workers in florida would resign rather than take the vaccine. >> i saw the mandate from the very beginning as perhaps the greatest example of government overreach. >> reporter: still in a separate decision thursday, the court did allow similar vaccine rules to stay in place for medical facilities that accept medicare or medicaid payments. >> cover 17 million health care workers at 76,000 medical facilities. the supreme court upheld it. >> reporter: but as the omicron surge rages health care staff around the country are rallying for better working conditions. >> i think nurses have more responsibilities. >> reporter: even as covid cases appear to be leveling off in some east coast cities, the biden administration now says it'll make higher quality masks available to americans for free and buy another 500 million rapid tests in addition to those previously announced. vice president harris talking about those already-ordered tests with craig. >> i you this by next week but
7:09 am
soon, absolutely soon. it is a matter of urgency for us. >> should we have done it sooner? >> we are doing. >> reporter: the white house updating the tests go out later this month. >> despite the supreme court ruling against president biden's vaccine mandate, there are companies in the headlines saying we don't care about that, we are going to require it anyway. >> reporter: that's right. what the ruling means is that big companies can still impose the vaccine mandate if they want to, but the government can't force them to do it. nike and tyson foods announced they're still moving forward with the mandate and j.p. morgan chase said they will too. it was hearing about one staff member dying a week per covid, and since the number went into effect the number is zero. >> strong words on that topic from people in the industry. gabe, thank you. we turn to washington and what's been a rough 24 hours for president biden's push to get
7:10 am
sweeping voting rights legislation through congress. this morning, it appears to have no real path forward after hitting another major stumbling block. nbc's senior white house correspondent kelly o'donnell has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, craig. a bruising experience for president biden. who is going all in using his time and political influence and coming up empty-handed so far. rejected by two senators of his own party. the president tried another personal meeting here at the white house that officials could only describe as candid and respectful. meaning no break throughs. this morning the drive to expand voting rights stalled. >> i hope we can get this done. but i'm not sure. >> reporter: after president biden's trip to capitol hill looked like a dead end. >> as long as i have a breath in me, as long as i'm in the white house, as long as i'm engaged at all, i'm going to be fighting. >> reporter: that passion turned into an invitation to the white house thursday night for the two democratic senators, joe manchin and kyrsten sinema, who rejected the president's appeals to
7:11 am
change senate rules. officials said they spent an hour and 15 minutes in the oval office. the meeting just hours after kyrsten sinema's resolute defiance, where she ruled out joining the president's plan to change the senate filibuster. so democrats alone, with their 50 votes, could pass voting rights legislation, that sinema herself favors. >> while i continue to support the bills i will not support action that worsen the underlying disease of division that affects our country. >> reporter: saying her opposition is also about defending democracy. >> when a party in control pushes party line changes exceeding their electoral mandate, the bitterness within
7:12 am
the politics is exacerbated. >> reporter: in an interview with craig, the vice president remained hopeful despite long odds. >> i'm saying it's not over and we don't give up. we don't give up and we will not give up. >> reporter: but there is a new delay. senator chuck schumer announced late thursday night that action on voting rights will slip into next week, blaming a covid case and a looming snowstorm. >> members of this chamber were elected to debate and to vote, particularly on an issue as vital to the beating heart of our democracy as this one. and we will proceed. >> reporter: so democrats are divided and a man down. they do not even have 50 healthy senators right now. hawaii democrat brian shontz is isolating with covid so he cannot be there. which is part of the delay to next week.
7:13 am
so this goes beyond the action by the holiday honoring martin luther king. >> thank you. let's move to a major development surrounding the january 6th insurrection. the leader of a far right group is in federal custody this morning facing charges he played a central role in the storming of the u.s. capitol. pete williams has details here. good morning. >> reporter: hoda, these are the most serious charges yet stemming from the capitol riot and they accuse the leader of the oath keeper hoping to prevent joe biden from becoming president. federal agents swarmed this house in texas with agents moving in to arrest stewart rhodes. now charged with seditious conspiracy. planning with ten ear members of group to carry out acts of violence to stop congress dpr formally counting the electoral vote for president. >> this is a very rarely charged
7:14 am
offense. it means that someone has been accused of using force to oppose the authority of the united states. so it's a pretty big crime. it's punishable by up to 20 years. >> reporter: prosecutors say as early as two days after the election rhodes sent his leadership team a message, we aren't getting through this without a civil war. he praised serbians in 2004. in late december rhodes messaged his team we need to make those senators very uncomfortable with all of us being a few hundred feet away. on january 6th as rioters broke through police lines. the government said stewart messaged his leadership saying the country's founders stormed massachusetts. they began breaching the capitol lined up in two groups. stewart stayed outside the building but later met with his
7:15 am
team to plan further violence and in the following weeks spent $17,000 buying weapons and ammunition. on inauguration day they members of the jury -- he messaged after this, if nothing happens it's war. civil war 2.0. he told an interviewer he did nothing wrong. >> i don't do illegal activities. i stay on this side of the line. i know where the lines are. it drives them crazy. >> reporter: a lawyer from stewart rhodes said the evidence in the indictment doesn't support the charges. 21 people have been accused of conspireing with other oath keepers to stop the vote count. two of them have pleaded guilty. we have more to get to this morning, including breaking news overnight in the novak djokovic saga. australia has now cancelled the tennis star's visa again. as his attorneys fight his pending deportation in court. "today's" senior international correspondent kier simmons has the latest.
7:16 am
>> reporter: good morning. dramatic news that novak djokovic will be detained by australian authorities tomorrow ahead of a hearing on sunday. a day before, he's due to play his first match. this week's events playing out like a tense tennis tie break. he arrived in australia, visa was cancelled, a judge allowed him to stay. now his visa cancelled a second time. he's been on court training for the tournament, starting in just three days. the first tennis grand slam event of the year, doubtful now if he'll be able to play. today's australia's immigration minister cancelled his visa again. the star admitted to breaking isolation rules and attending an interview after he tested positive for covid-19. he said, i cancelled all other events except the interview. i went home after the interview to isolate for the required
7:17 am
period, on reflection this was an error of judgment. and incorrect information on his paperwork saying it was submitted by his support team on his behalf, adding this was a human error and not deliberate. >> not great for the tennis, not great for the australian open. not great for novack. it's not been good. >> reporter: djokovic is unvaccinated and supports personal choice. >> so whether someone wants to get a vaccine or not, that's completely up to them. >> reporter: his decision dividing world opinion. his supporters elated this week when he was allowed to stay. the others not, the hashtag djokovic out trending this week on twitter. and australians pressuring their government not to grant special treatment. at stake a chance to win the grand slam record and take his place as the greatest player in men's tennis history.
7:18 am
a prize that may now be slipping away. this morning, the australian prime minister saying the decision to revoke his visa took careful consideration and protects sacrifices australians have made. but if djokovic loses his case, he could be banned from australia for three years. the player used to winning on court now facing the battle of his career in court. >> kier simmons for us. thank you. it is time to get a forecast from mr. roker. >> we got you covered. let's see what we got for today. we're looking at partly cloudy excuse in seattle, 51. san francisco, 59. a beautiful day in los angeles. sun and clouds and temperatures at 70. 66 in vegas and sunshine. billings, montana, chilly with partly cloudy sky and 38 kbreez. and we're looking at a little bit of cloudiness. a few showers in the pacific northwest. you're drying out. that's good news. you deserve it.

s is happy birthday, "today" show. where i spent five glorious years with gene shallot and jane pauly. >> and all the best to mr. brokaw, a fixture at nbc news. my office is right next to his here on "today" for 55 years. we'll be hearing from a lot of awesome folks like mr. brokaw over the next hour. >> so many amazing people have sat in these chairs. unbelievable. let's get to our 7:30 headlines. north korea fired at least two ballistic missiles this morning. it comes hours after beraiding
7:31 am
the biden administration for sanctions over the previous missile tests. north korea warned of stronger action if washington maintains its, quote, confrontational stance. california governor gavin newsom has denied patrol to sirhan sirhan. the governor outlining his decision saying in part that sirhan's accountability to require his support his safe release into the community. kennedy's widow and six of her children said they were deeply relieved by newsom's decision. six days after a seattle house collapsed in a landslide, firefighters rescued a dog that had been missing and presumed dead. >> did you get her?
7:32 am
>> yeah. >> oh my god! oh my god! >> that's a miracle right there. the owner broke out into tears as firefighters saved the lab named sammy. the dog in stable condition. the two story house slid off its foundation in heavy rains last friday. thankfully the homeowners out safely and now extra happy with sammy out too. >> dogs have nine lives too. now to royal drama inside the royal family. the queen stripping prince andrew of all ties to the military and charities. >> it means he faces a civil lawsuit accusing him of sexual abuse as a private citizen. molly hunter joins us now from buckingham palace. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, the queen and buckingham palace clearly had to act. this was not going away. yesterday more than 100 members of the armed service wrote to the queen asking her to strip her son's titles and last night
7:33 am
the queen acted decisively and quickly. as the pressure build, the queen taking steps to protect her royal reputation. stripping prince andrew's military titles as he faces suits of sexual assault allegations. adding the 61-year-old prince is defending the case as a private citizen. prince andrew will also no longer use the title his royal highness. the move coming after the times of london reporting a face-to-face meeting on thursday. prince andrew reported leaving the queen's royal lodge on the estate. >> i think for the whole institution she had to act before it got worse. >> reporter: virginia giuffre is suing prince andrew for alleged sexual assault. >> it was a really scary time in my life. i had just been abused by a member of the royal family.
7:34 am
>> reporter: this week a new york judge rejecting the prince's bid to have the case thrown out making clear the lawsuit will move forward. a source close to the duke of york telling nbc news we are unsurprised by the ruling adding this is a marathon not a sprint. prince andrew has repeatedly denied virginia giuffre's allegations. >> i have no recollection of meeting this lady. >> reporter: overnight, virginia giuffre tweeting i'm glad i will have the chance to continue this. adding that the rich and powerful are not above the law and must be held accountable. there's a long way to go before it goes to trial. prince andrew could appeal the ruling, he could settle out of court. but if this goes to court we could see prince andrew testify under oath. hoda. >> molly hunter, thank you.
7:35 am
let's get to what's next. we turn to daisy mcandrew for that. what's next. the step of stripping his titles, how big of a deal is it and what message is the queen trying to convey? >> reporter: no matter which way you look at this, it is a very, very big deal. some people will say what difference will it make, because prince andrew hadn't done any royal duties for two years. but the point is he thought he would in the future. he kept saying he's going to clear his name, be back in the fold. that's not going to happen. he's been banished now permanently. all these patronages and titles he's had to give up are being divvied out among other members of the royal family for good he's out in the cold for good. >> what does that mean for the case against him if you're a juror and you see his own mother stripped his titles, what impact is it going to have on the case?
7:36 am
>> reporter: they didn't want to have an impact on the case, they wanted to protect their own, the royal family this is something that the british public wanted the royal family to do, but it was obviously a difficult thing to do the queen had to have the 45-minute meeting with what we're told is her favorite son and basically say i'm sorry, you're out that would have been a very bitter pill for prince andrew to swallow. we know he's proud of his own military background, he saw active service he was told, as molly was just saying, not only does the royal family not want him, the military doesn't want him. so it was a big humiliation for him. >> can we talk about the queen for a second i kept thinking she's been through so much, the dust up with harry and meghan, lost her husband of 74 years, and now the scandal with her own son do your sources have any information on how she is
7:37 am
dealing with all of this >> reporter: i think on a personal level she is absolutely devastated but i think what's interesting is yet again, as she has done throughout her 70-year reign, she has put country and crown ahead of personal family life. and yet again, that's what she's done she's taken her responsibilities seriously and put her own feelings to one side as i said, this had year is her platinum jubilee that was something that the royal family did not want to be overshadowed by this case. it will be because the interest is still going to be intense but now prince andrew will be fighting the case as a private citizen. as far as popularity is concerned, i was looking at the latest poll results from a couple of weeks ago. you compare the queen in this country has a positivity rate of plus 60, that's how popular she is prince andrew has a negative popularity of minus 50 i suspect we'll see the difference between them increase now. he will become even less
7:38 am
popular. i think the very, very courageous steps she's taken will make her more popular and people will feel more sorry for her as well. >> daisy mcandrew for us thank you. >> the queen has been through and seen so much in the last few years. a major change in the atlantic bringing tiger sharks to east coast beaches. and experts fear it's dangerous for them and us. kerry sanders has that story for us right after this. m and us. ♪♪♪ gravity. ♪♪♪ it's a fororce to be reckckoned with.h. nono one knowsws better thanan we do. it's a fororce to be reckckoned with.h. but wiwithout gravavity, you can'n't have lifift. the veryry thing that h holds you d down isis the very y thing that h helps you r rise abov. thanksks to gravitity, the rel force to b be reckoneded h isis the very y thing that h helps you r rise abov.
