What will The Today Show look like without Matt Lauer and his impressive middle-aged body? Viewers will find out in 2013.
A source tells Entertainment Tonight the journalist will exit the morning series when his deal expires on December 31, 2012. He has served as co-anchor since 1997.
This report follows other shake-ups at the network: insiders claim Meredith Vieira will also depart Today in September, while Katie Couric will soon leave as anchor of the CBS Evening News.
Expect all three to be seriously hot commodities once their deals expire.
