Jim Payne on Today

Jim Payne appeared on the Today show around 8:35 a.m. this morning.  He nearly doubled the time of last year’s appearance — clocking over 20 seconds of air time — and even got a hug from Today co-host Ann Curry.

He was on Rockefeller Plaza with Ann, Meredith Vieira, Al Roker and the guy who fills in for Matt Lauer talking about Quixtar’s donation to NBC’s toy drive.  The crowd at Quixtar’s Spaulding cafeteria was a bit noisy so we couldn’t hear well, but one thing was for sure…Jim looked very cold!
