Matt Lauer Being Fired From TODAY?
Posted by Adam
MATT Lauer is getting the boot from the TODAY show.
The 54-year-old TV veteran is being ousted from the program after years of clashing with his co-anchors and the NBC morning show’s ratings tanking.
“It’s just desserts. Matt is finally getting what he deserves!” a source said.
“His years-long feuds with former co-hosts Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry have taken their toll. Everyone has turned against him, and Matt is going to be ousted because he’s being blamed for the show’s collapse.”
Sources say well-liked weatherman Al Roker is secretly plotting to push Lauer aside, and will lobby the new boss for help.
“Matt and Al used to be good buddies — until Al found out Matt had been instrumental in Ann’s ouster,” said the source. “They come across as friends on the air, but that’s all an act.
“Adding a fresh new guy like Willie Geist to the mix is just what Al feels Today needs to help pull the show out of the ratings doldrums and compete with GMA.
