The Niagara Tourism & Convention Corp. has announced the popular "Today with Kathie Lee & Hoda" will offer the Niagara USA destination as a prize for a vacation Thursday morning on the highly rated morning show.

In partnership with various hospitality and tourism properties in Niagara USA, NTCC entered into an agreement with NBCUniversal Media to offer a package to the area valued below $5,000. During the fourth hour of "Today," the package will be featured as a giveaway for one lucky audience member.
