Those who were worried that Matt Lauer might be leaving NBCís Today show neednít stress any more. Lauer isnít going anywhere... at least, not anytime soon from the sound of it. Lauer confirmed the news on Today this morning. Watch the video ahead!
While there was apparently talk that Lauer might be leaving Today at the end of his contract, thatís not to be the cast. This morning, he confirmed that heís sticking with the show, calling Today his family and saying, ďI love this job, I love working with you guys."†According to the seriesí website, Matt has signed a new long-term contract with NBC News, though the site doesnít specify how long.
Hereís the video of his announcement...
Lauer has been with Today since 1994, though he didnít start co-anchoring until 1997.
Earlier this week Ryan Seacrest appeared on the show and the two discussed (and sort of joked about) the rumors that Seacrest might be taking over Lauerís role as host. While Seacrest will be working with NBC at some point in the future (including covering the Olympics), it doesn't look like he'll be filling Lauer's shoes... yet anyway.
