Emerson sophomore trying to get on Friday’s TODAY show live broadcast at Faneuil Hall Marketplace

Christian Bergren-Aragon is relentless. By hook or by crook _ or sheer determination _ the Emerson College sophomore hopes to be on Friday’s TODAY show, which will be broadcast live from Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

Bergren-Aragon’s campaign is a combination of new school and old school: hashtagging at #ChristianBAonToday and handing out business cards to Emerson students and locals on the streets. “It has been awesome, and a crazy experience to keep up with,” he says, referring to the response. “I am consistently retweeting, following and hashtagging in between meetings and classes.

Hosts Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie will start taping at 6:30 a.m. from the Upper Rotunda and the West End of Faneuil Hall. And even if Bergren-Aragon doesn’t get his wish, our very own Dropkick Murphys will drop by to perform.
