Matt Lauer has signed a new, long-term deal with the “Today” show. He will become way richer than he already is, and we”re told the next move will be to send Ann Curry packing.
As our sources first reported, Lauer got close to his $30 million a year asking price, nearly doubling his $17 million a year current salary.
It”s bad news for Ann Curry, because our sources say Lauer does not want her as his co-host, and it appears her fate is now sealed.
NBC sources say Ann”s likely replacement will be Savannah Guthrie.
