Vieira Jumps up the Interview Food Chain

Meredith Vieira and Matt LauerStep aside Matt Lauer, there’s a new NBC hotshot nabbing the Madonna exclusives. Alright, so Meredith Vieira might not have scored the first interview about Mrs. Richie’s quickie, controversial African adoption (that honor went to Oprah, who talked with her via satellite last Wednesday). But the Irvington native now has the first face-to-face sit down with Malawi’s Material Girl. According to the Post, they’re going to tape the interview on Tuesday, and then air it Wednesday, Nov. 3, on the Today show.
