NEW YORK (AP) -- Matt Lauer is adding to his frequent-flier miles.
NBC's "Today" show said Monday that it will revive its popular "Where in the World is Matt Lauer?" feature for a week starting Nov. 7. Lauer last hit the road in 2008.
Lauer has shown up in Laos, on Mount Everest, in Peru, on an oil rig, in Australia, in Istanbul and by the pyramids in Egypt, among other locations. Viewers and co-workers aren't clued in until each morning's show. He's logged 248,166 miles in travel for the feature.
NBC has scheduled it for a ratings "sweeps" month, as "Today" faces some energetic competition from ABC's "Good Morning America" this season.
