The Today Show has many familiar faces hosting the NBC daytime program each day, including Carson Daly - who is a regular on the Third Hour show, alongside Al Roker, Dylan Dreyer, Craig Melvin and Sheinelle Jones. 

However, Carson isn't always on the program, as he splits his time between the East Coast for his Today Show duties, and the West Coast, where he hosts The Voice. 

Carson has been hosting the popular talent show for 24 seasons, and on Wednesday's episode of the show, his co-stars discussed his unique setup as he continues to travel from coast to coast.

"Guys, Carson, as we all know, has been hard at work on The Voice. Traveling back and forth, he doesn't even know what timezone he's in right now," Savannah Guthrie pointed out at the top of the showbiz segment, which saw them interview The Voice coaches. 

Craig also congratulated his colleague on his long-running role on the popular show: "Congratulations, by the way, 24 seasons is no small feat," he added.

Carson is incredibly close to both his co-stars on Today and The Voice. In fact, he even officiated Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's wedding back in 2021.

His big role in the celebrity nuptials was "very, very special," to him, and at the time he opened up about it to his co-stars on Today. "It was incredible to be a part of such an important moment in their lives," he said.

"The ceremony was a perfect blend of country and glamour, of course, just like Blake and Gwen. The wedding, the best way to describe it, is it was perfectly them the whole weekend and the marriage itself. It was as elegant and refined and cool as Gwen is and it was as country and down-home and fun as Blake is."

At the time, Carson also shared a series of pictures from the special day on social media, alongside the caption: "Here comes the bride… so honoured to get to marry two of my favorite people on earth. May God bless you guys in this new chapter of your lives. We love you!"

Carson is incredibly open about his personal life too, and has been praised in the past for talking about his mental health struggles, and helping to raise awareness.

In an interview with USA Today in 2022, the dad-of-four said: "You may know me from MTV or as a celebrity of whatever you think of me. You may think my life's perfect. I've got kids. I always look happy on TV or when you watch me on The Voice. But that's just not how it works. It's not like that."

He added: "On The Voice, when I'm live on Monday nights, most of the time, my right hand is in my right pocket, and I'm literally gripping onto the flesh of my thigh because I'm waiting for a high-panic moment to pass."

This resulted in Carson leading a new Mind Matter series on Today, which saw him talk to a number of people who have been impacted by mental health.
