In 1999 NBC replaced the long running News at Sunrise with Early Today, seeking to extend the strong Today-brand. This is not the first time that time slot was occupied by a newscast named Early Today. From 1982 to 1983 the peacock network also used this title for its early morning newscast. The current incarnation, during the period in which this theme was used, was produced by CNBC and focused on financial and business news. Because of this, the show had similar graphics as the main CNBC network and Early Today was taped at CNBC headquarters. The show was anchored by CNBC’s Nanette Hansen. The theme is by JSM Music.
