Where in the world is Matt Lauer? Has anyone else noticed the co-anchor of The Today Show has been noticeably missing quite a lot lately?
Will Matt Lauer will be fired from the TODAY show? The man said to be responsible for Ann Curry being fired from the morning show, has until February to prove he is worth the $25 million a year he earns. If The Today show’s ratings don’t improve by February, Matt Lauer will be out of a job.
The co-host, faces the axe if the morning news program continues to lose viewers to its rival Good Morning America – and a replacement for Lauer is already being named, according to Radaronline.
The TODAY show has always been a money-maker for NBC, dominating the morning news ratings for years and bringing in millions of dollars in ad revenue. If viewers continue to prefer Good Morning America over the TODAY Show, revenue will decrease and cuts will have to be made.
The best way to reduce expenses would be to cut Matt Lauer’s huge salary?
As for the replacement? Willie Geist. He has been very popular with viewers and the crew and we have been seeing a lot of him lately. Anyone else notice, Matt hasn’t been around a lot lately?
