American Express partners with The Today Show The network said Friday it had extended a partnership with American Express in which the credit-card company will, next week, help to expand segments across three hours of its “Today” morning-show franchise, replacing time that would normally be filled with ads. On Today.com, the show’s web presence, pre-roll ads will be reduced. The 7 a.m. hour of “Today,” arguably the show’s newsiest and best-watched, will retain its original structure.
