Hoda Kotb's 'Today' Salary Reportedly Revealed, Earning $18 Million Less Than Matt Lauer

Hoda Kotb's 'Today' Salary Reportedly Revealed, Earning $18 Million Less Than Matt Lauer

A new report has emerged suggesting Hoda Kotb is making way less than Matt Lauer made in the same position.

News broke yesterday that Hoda was replacing Lauer as the new Today show anchor after he was fired for sexual misconduct back in November. Apparently, Hoda is making $7 million a year (which is what current co-host Savannah Guthrie is reportedly making). Lauer allegedly made $25 million per year.

Hoda isn’t complaining about the money. She has landed the big job she always dreamed of, and most definitely deserves. Plus, Matt‘s salary reflected the long time he was on the show – 25 years. If things go well, Hoda could ask for more next time if she re-ups her contract. But the figures underline the huge wage disparity at NBC News,” a source told Page Six. NBC would not comment on the salary reports.

    They should match both of their salaries to Matt Lauer’s. That is BS!

    and meanwhile, a family down the street in that same NYC can’t keep their kids fed and their home warm. if NBC took the opportunity to can a pervy Lauer and in the same go save a few mill on pay that’s fine. Hoda’s still getting a huge chunk of pie and then some.

    She’s making plenty of money, and is an improvement over Lauer, but her huge phony looking smile is incredibly annoying.

    Matt was grossly overpaid. The show is probably glad they can finally save some money.

    That show is better off without Matt. Plus they are saving a lot of money right now.
