NEW YORK (AP) — The glory days are back for the “Today” show — for one day at least — with NBC’s morning show bringing back Bryant Gumbel and Jane Pauley for a one-day nostalgia turn as co-hosts.

Gumbel and Pauley, who worked together on “Today” from 1982 to 1989, joined Matt Lauer to co-host on Monday. It wasn’t ceremonial: with Savannah Guthrie and Natalie Morales off, Gumbel and Pauley had to work.

Gumbel acknowledged that getting back to the early start was difficult. Pauley said the fast pace makes the experience go “like a bat out of heck.”

Not everyone’s memory was clear. A sign held up by a fan outside the studio misspelled Gumbel’s name.
