The media’s love for Hot Dog Mike is going national. In July, Travel + Leisure will feature his dogs as part of a “Taste of the South” article, and tomorrow, in conjunction with that piece, NBC’s “Today” show will feature Hot Dog Mike hot dogs, but sadly not Hot Dog Mike.

See them in the 8 a.m. hour.

Maybe Al Roker will eat a hot dog and talk about man candy in the same breathe.
