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.
