Matt Lauer may have signed an 11-figure deal to remain lead anchor on The Today Show earlier this summer, but it's been anything but smooth sailing for the reporter since.
And, yesterday, Today chose to air an interview with Kris Jenner instead of observing a 9/11-based moment of silence.
Where is Lauer's head these days as a result of such developments?
He tells TMZ that there's no beef with Roker and, sure, there's pressure for the show to succeed. But no more than usual
"We feel the heat every day," Lauer says. "But we have for the last 20 years that I've been there. We're just trying to do the best show we can do every single day ... and I think we're doing a good job right now ... and I think the cycle will reverse."
