Matt Lauer To Be Fired by The Today Show
According to The National Enquirer, the veteran Today Show host will soon be fired from the morning program, partly due to its floundering ratings and partly due to his relationships off camera.
“Matt is finally getting what he deserves,” says the insider. “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 is going to be ousted.”
The Ann Curry firing remains a polarizing issue for Today viewers and producers, with everyone agreeing it was handled poorly and many stating Lauer was responsible for the move.
With Good Morning America winning the ratings battle after years in second place, Today recently announced that Alexandra Wallace will replace Jim Bell as Executive Producer.
The new boss is unafraid to “ruffle Lauer’s feathers,” reports this show insider, and may very well let go of the main man behind the desk.
