Willie Geist, VU ‘97 – TODAY Show Host Uses French in Interview

Posted by Valerie Strain on Friday, November 16, 2012 in alumni, news.

Alumnus Willie Geist, ’97, TODAY Show host shares this quote with us after using his French in an interview with actor Bradley Cooper:

“In four years of highlights at Vanderbilt, the biggest was my time in Aix-en-Provence with the Vanderbilt-in-France program. The French language took me that semester to corners of Europe I never thought I’d see — corners to which I’ve returned many times since. Plus, you never know when you’re going to have to drop a little French in an interview on the Today show.”

–Willie Geist, A&S ‘97
Host, NBC’s “TODAY” and MSNBC’s“Morning Joe”
