Matt Lauer Announces He's Staying On the 'Today' Show!

Matt Lauer has officially announced his plans to stay on as co-host of the Today show!

“This is my family, this is my show…let’s keep going,” the 54-year-old television personality said on the air early Friday morning (April 6).

Co-host Al Roker applauded his on-air announcement, and Ann Curry called the announcement a “huge bit of great news”.

“Matt is the franchise, and our franchise player has decided to keep leading our team,” Steve Capus, president of NBC News, told the New York Times the previous evening.

ARE YOU EXCITED Matt Lauer has decided to stay with the Today show?

    “…this is my show.” uhmm really?? ann is def on the chopping block. according to tmz, matt will stay only if ann gets kicked out. ouch!

    Where exactly is he going to go. I doubt he would be offered an night time desk gig. Matt is only popular on Today. and that show is so boring now. And was when Merideth was on too. Katie learned the hard way. She was not taken seriously on Night news. and Matt would be in the same position. He is staying because he has no where to go. And nobody really cares anyway.

    and whole Ann thing is funny. It will be a PR clean up if Ann goes and Matt stays. It will seem like he got her fired.

    Ann Curry is so much beter than Matt Lauer…….

  • kami

    can’t stand him. don’t watch that show cause he’s on it. never will.

  • ali

    he seems like a prick. his interviewing style is never related and thoughtful, always just a hint of edge for no reason. I switch when he comes on. love charlie rose; love stephanopoulos. ann curry is the humanizing element on Today. If they lose her, she should jump to ABC.

    If Ann Curry leaves, I will not watch the Today show anymore. Shame on you Matt Lauer. YOU are the boring one. Ann made the show pleasant to watch.

    @Carol from Herkimer:
    I agree! Matt is truly the one that should go.Why let the females go? Why replace them when MATT SHOULD be replaced. Like right now! Another mistake would be to bring back Meredith. Really don’t like her! Ann is much,much better. Wise up!
