Dateline NBC is notable for its longevity on the network. Prior to Dateline, NBC had failed with 20 different TV news magazine programs. The show, which has aired since 1992, is currently anchored by Ann Curry and occasionally by Hoda Kotb. Curry first co-anchored on June 24, 2005. Stone Phillips and Jane Pauley previously co-anchored. Tom Brokaw, Matt Lauer, and Brian Williams are among the NBC News correspondents who occasionally file stories for the program. Contributing Anchors were Bryant Gumbel who left NBC in 1997, Maria Shriver who left the job soon after her husband became governor of California in 2004. Katie Couric was also a contributing anchor until 2006, when she left NBC News. The program first originated from NBC Studio 3K, using the same set the NBC Nightly News was using at the time. When The Today Show moved to its current sidewalk studio, Dateline took over Studio 3B with a brand-new set. Dateline was broadcast in High Definition for the first time on Monday, July 21, 2008. However, future airings of Dateline are not tagged as HDTV broadcasts on NBC's schedule online. The show airs on Sundays 7 - 9 PM and Fridays 9 - 11 PM. The fall 2009 season will begin airing on Saturday, September 26, 2009.
