Will Ryan Seacrest Replace Matt Lauer on 'Today'?

Ryan Seacrest is a “possible successor” to Matt Lauer if the Today co-anchor leaves the morning show next year, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The 36-year-old American Idol host reportedly met with NBC executives to discuss the possibility of him joining the morning program.

“The talks are preliminary and could fall apart at any time. They also may be in part a negotiating tactic for NBC executives who need a strong backup plan in case [Matt] leaves the show,” a source told the paper, adding that Ryan is one of the network’s top replacement choices.

Kanye West: Matt Lauer Tried to Force My Answers

Kanye West has sounded off about his recent experience on Today.

The 33-year-old rapper dropped by Today and apologized for his infamous outburst during a Hurricane Katrina telethon.

Here’s what Kanye had to say on his Twitter:

“I went up there to express how I was empathetic to Bush because I labeled him a racist and years later I got labeled as a racist….While I was trying to give the interview they started playing the ‘MTV’ under me with audio!!!!!!!

“I don’t mess with Matt Lauer or the Today Show … and that’s a very nice way for me to put it! HE TRIED TO FORCE MY ANSWERS. IT WAS VERY BRUTAL AND I CAME THERE WITH ONLY POSITIVE INTENT. I feel very alone very used very tortured very forced very misunderstood very hollow very very misused. I don’t trust anyone but myself! Everyone has an agenda. I don’t do press anymore. I can’t be everything to everybody anymore.”
