This week has been full or rumors and reports of people leaving their seats as TV journalists and presenters, the latest comes in the form of Matt Lauer who is supposedly leaving The Today Show when his contract expires next year.
Entertainment Tonight report that Lauer’s contract expires on December 31st 2012 and he has no intentions to sign the dotted line on another contract. This comes hot off the heels of the news that his co-presenter Meredith Vieria may not renew her contract for Today when it expires later this year. Today show bosses released a statement saying:
“There seems to be an awful lot of speculation around news anchors these days, and it’s not our practice to comment on any of it. Matt Lauer has a long term contract with NBC News and ‘Today.’ The Today Show anchors are currently under contract and firmly in place.”"
This all comes with the news that Matt’s former Today Show co-host, Katie Couric, is also leaving her gig on the Evening News after joining the show back in 2006.
Now there are rumors that both Matt and Katie are planning on teaming up with Jeff Zucker, the former Today Show exec producer, and launch their own show. I guess time will tell how this all pans out.
