NEW YORK, NY - From diaper duty to dishwashing, the role of dads is constantly evolving.   All next week, NBC's TODAY will study, survey and celebrate the modern dad.   The special series, “Modern Dads” will begin Sunday, June 8 and end on Father's Day.

Throughout the week, TODAY will tackle fatherhood topics from potty training to paternity leave with multi-generational dads from across the country.  TODAY’s resident dads, Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Willie Geist, Carson Daly and Lester Holt will talk candidly about parenting, and they will share stories about their own fathers.

Celebrity guest dads participating in the series include actors Rob Lowe and Terry Crews, country music star Josh Turner, New York Met Dan Murphy, New York Knick Amar'e Stoudemire, as well as other special guests.  TODAY will also highlight and acknowledge many deserving dads with unforgettable surprises each day.  

As part of the series, TODAY.com will feature the results of a wide-ranging NBC News survey of 2,000 dads and moms.  The survey will reveal what today’s dads are doing and how it’s different from previous generations.TODAY.com will introduce a new network of dad contributors who will share their best “dad hacks” online all week.  TODAY.com is also officially changing the name of its TODAY Moms community to TODAY Parents.

Viewers can join the action by sharing their #ModernDad stories on social media and with TODAY’s Orange Room. TODAY invites dads to join the conversation about stories and issues that affect all parents at facebook.com/todayparents.
