NAVAL STATION NORFOLK (WAVY) – On Wednesday, NBC’s Today Show featured Naval Station Norfolk Commanding Officer Captain Janet Days live on the show as part of International Women’s Day.

According to a social media post from Naval Station Norfolk, a crew from the Today Show has been in Hampton Roads ahead of Wednesday’s segment in New York City.

They provided this behind-the-scenes image of them filming the segment that will air as part of tomorrow’s appearance.

As WAVY has reported, Capt. Days is the first Black woman to serve as commanding officer at the world’s largest Navy base. She took command during a ceremony last month.

Local group “GIRLSClub” was also featured during the show. The group, based in Hampton, is comprised of young girls from all over Hampton Roads.

Capt. Days is originally from Chicago, but she has a longtime tie to Hampton Roads, having graduated from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, in 1999.

The Today Show airs weekdays on WAVY TV 10 beginning at 7 a.m. According to a post from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, Capt. Days will appear during the 8-9 a.m. hour.
