Matt Lauer isn’t going to get fired for Today’s Show’s poor ratings as the head of the show shoot down the rumors, but an insider said otherwise!
This is what Alexandra Wallace said of the rumor:
"There is absolutely no truth to this. There have been some recent outrageous claims regarding Matt and the 'Today' show, and an awful lot of piling on from nameless, faceless sources. These stories are wrong and irresponsible."
NBC News President Steve Capus also gave his piece on the matter:
"Sadly, this is the era in which we live: Venomous tweets somehow threaten to drown out all of those who praised Matt for his coverage."
But an insider said ohterwise, they even gave a deadline that if the ratings doesn’t improve by February of 2013 Matt’s head need to go.
The anonymous source said:
"News executive Alexandra Wallace has told NBC bosses she will have to replace Matt if the ratings continue to tank. If viewers continue preferring Good Morning America over the TODAY show that revenue will decrease and cuts will have to be made."
The source added:
"Matt's contract pays him $25 million-a-year, and he just signed an extension to that deal last year before the ratings started falling. However, Alexandra has told her bosses if the show isn't pulling in more viewers by February, she has no alternative but to fire Matt."
Do you think that the rumor has truth in it or not?
