Matt Lauer Announces a New Long Term Deal with Today
Monday, April 9, 2012
Matt Lauer has signed a new long-term deal to stay at the Today show. He says that he is to stay with Today even if his hair may not abide by the terms of his new contract.
Lauer is anchoring for the NBC’s No. 1 rated morning show since last 15 years.
He formally announced his new deal during Friday’s broadcast. According to the reports, the new deal is to be worth around $25 million a year.
“Truth be told,” he laughed, “I was developing an idea for a new show, where viewers could tune in every morning and see someone they know lose a little more of his hair every single day right in front of their eyes. But then I thought, I could just stay here and do that.”
His colleague Al Roker one-upped him in the comedy department as he broke into a spirited, mocking impersonation of former NBC family member Keith Olbermann, who was recently-fired as Current TV anchor.
