Rina Raphael, Features Editor – NBC’s Today

Rina Raphael, Features Editor - NBC's Today

Is Rina Raphael your ultimate Nice Jewish Girl dream? An exotic name, replete with alliteration. Actually, you know, goes to services sometimes (your mother would kvell). Hot? Clearly. Best of all, Ms. Raphael has the privilege of getting to work with—among other people—Kathie Lee and Hoda, the two lush mavens of Today‘s esteemed fourth hour. You would think this would drive a person to…drink? But Ms. Raphael has managed to stay the course with NBC, daytime sobriety, quick wits, down-to-earth sanity, and sultry, ever-present smile always intact. Rina, ditch the zero, and get with a hero. Or whoever we cut out of that picture.
