Because aerialist Nik Wallenda did not get a chance to talk to Today B teamers Willie Geist and Natalie Morales while he was walking across the Little Colorado River Gorge for Discovery Channel last Sunday, he will “talk the walk” this Sunday instead, the basic cable network said today. Wallenda had been so busy talking to Jesus and God it had seemed inappropriate at the time to interview Wallenda during his walk, Geist told viewers after the walk ended happily. This Sunday at 8 PM, Wallenda will tell viewers what he was thinking and experiencing physically every step, and Discovery will get to pop a number with a live event telecast repeat a full week later — another incredible feat!
