Kathie Lee Gifford
says there will be a “revolt” at NBC if the powers that be allow Matt Lauer to leave the “Today” show, telling our sources … she”ll do whatever it takes to keep him around.

Kathie Lee was leaving Rockefeller Center in NYC Monday morning when she made it clear — she thinks Matt has been unfairly demonized in the media in the wake of Ann Curry“s firing.

Kathie tells us, she wanted to buy a full page ad in an NYC newspaper defending her longtime co-worker, but Matt talked her out of it.

Bottom line, if Lauer ever gets ousted … Kathie no happy.
