MSNBC.com (www.msnbc.com) is bringing Web surfers a new Today.

The enhanced version of MSNBC.com’s Today site (today.msnbc.com) will include weekly articles from anchors of NBC’s morning show, exclusive content from regular Today contributors, a "Recipe Finder" with more than 3,000 recipes and a Today newsletter.

MSNBC.com also created a new editorial position to manage the expansion, hiring former People.com (people.aol.com/people/index.html) editor Matt Diebel.

"With more exclusive and interactive features and columns written by the Today show hosts, this site is like having access to Today all day long," MSNBC.com editor in chief Dean Wright said in a prepared statement. "We are so pleased about the new Today.MSNBC.com and are excited to welcome Matt to the MSNBC.com team."

"This is a perfect pairing of America's No. 1 morning-news program with the No. 1 news Web site," NBC News president Neal Shapiro added.
