Matt Lauer was fired from NBC back in November 2017, and the latest reports suggest that he is now sending all kinds of advice from his home to NBC for the Today show. The staff is not too thrilled about this situation.
The former presenter of Today show from NBC keeps sending unsolicited suggestions and advice to the show’s producers even if nobody asked for it.
This comes after a month since he was fired from NBC due to sexual misconduct.
Page Six reported that sources from inside NBC are claiming that Matt keeps sending advice ‘from his sofa’ to Today staff and nobody is pleased with this situation.
If you are wondering what’s his suggestion are about, well, for instance, it has been reported that he included an idea that one of the producers used a wrong piece of introduction music to lead into a show’s segment.
Hoda Kotb was recently announced as the new co-anchor of Today, replacing Matt at NBC.
She received a congratulatory text from him, and she was thrilled and proud because of this.
Hoda told E! News that after she was announced as Matt’s replacement, she received all kinds of texts, and there was also a message from Matt.
Hoda stated that she was pleased about his message because it included some nice words which meant a lot to her.
After he was fired, Matt kept laying low for a while but it seems that now he’s beginning to send a few words to NBC’s show and ex-colleagues. He is also reportedly begging Annette Roque to offer him one more chance to try and save their marriage.
