TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will guest-host the “Today” show later this month.

NBC announced Tuesday that Mr. Christie will be a co-host for an hour of the May 24 show, which will broadcast from the Jersey shore as part of its “Great American Adventure” road trip. A location for the appearance has not been finalized.

The road trip segment involves the show’s anchors traveling together to five U.S. destinations in a single week. Mr. Christie has stressed the Jersey shore’s importance as a tourist destination in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.

Mr. Christie joins former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former first lady Laura Bush as other political figures who have co-hosted an hour of the morning show.

The Republican governor is running for a second term. A spokesman confirmed Tuesday that Mr. Christie had undergone weight loss surgery in February.
