Matt Lauer is now telling his bosses at NBC that they should just accede to former Today show anchor Ann Curry and let her out of her contract so she can accept a job offer rival outlet CNN recently made to her.
Tells a source to radaronline: “Matt thinks that NBC should let Ann out of her contract so that she can take the CNN gig. He can’t imagine why the bosses are dragging their feet and are at a stalemate. It would allow Ann to get back on the air on a regular basis and everyone can move on from the debacle. Matt only wishes Ann the best and thinks it’s for the best if she were to take a job at another network.”
Since Ann Curry asked to be let out of her contract with NBC two weeks ago, NBC have to date kept her in the dark about whether they will let her out of her contract so she can take a prime nightly role with former boss Today boss Jeff Zucker who is now running CNN.
Despite Matt’s overtures many are wondering if it’s a little too late as the Today anchor with perfect tea manners continues to receive consternation for the morning show’s continuing collapse in ratings.
Reflected one reader: He sees people love Ann, and hate him. So now his fake ass is being nice. Go to hell Matt and take NBC bosses with you.
