NBC'S Today Show to Air Special Report on the Navy's Outlying Landing Field 
(OLF) in Washington County, North Carolina
NBC's Today Show is tentatively scheduled to air a segment on US Navy plans to 
build a jet landing field adjacent to a globally significant wildlife refuge on 
Monday morning, October 13, between 7 am and 9 am EDT**. 
The Today Show feature, reported by NBC News's Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim 
Miklaszewski, will focus on the dangers of and community reactions to a 
training field proposed for Washington County, North Carolina, within miles of 
the Pocosin Lakes National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is winter home to some 
100,000 swans, geese and other large waterfowl that come from as far away as 
Arctic Canada and Alaska. Audubon and other conservation groups and local town 
leaders were interviewed for this important segment which should further 
strengthen the objections to the Navy's ill-suited plan.
**NOTE: Broadcast date and time are best available at time of issuing this 
notice but subject to change by the network.
