Matt Lauer To Be Fired by The Today Show?!?

Has the axe come down on Matt Lauer?

According to The National Enquirer, the veteran Today Show host will soon be fired from the morning program, partly due to its floundering ratings and partly due to his relationships off camera.

"Matt is finally getting what he deserves," says the insider. “His years-long feuds with former co-hosts Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry have taken their toll. Everyone has turned against him and Matt is going to be is going to be ousted."

The Ann Curry firing remains a polarizing issue for Today viewers and producers, with everyone agreeing it was handled poorly and many stating Lauer was responsible for the move.

With Good Morning America winning the ratings battle after years in second place, Today recently announced that Alexandra Wallace will replace Jim Bell as Executive Producer.

The new boss is unafraid to "ruffle Lauer's feathers," reports this show insider, and may very well let go of the main man behind the desk.

Lauer's most likely replacement would be Lestor Holt.

What would you think of this move? Should The Today Show fire Lauer?

Matt should not be blamed for Ann Curry, she was a horrible host, never should have gotten the co-hosting job. With that being said I won't watch TODAY until they make some changes...I love Lester Holt and hope he gets the job!Good reddence Matt, you've had your run, buhbye!

Get rid of Natalie too....the constant flirting while the two are on together is just so distracting.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy. What goes around comes around, and guess what Matt, it's your turn now.

Get rid of Matt please. And get rid of Savanah and Natalie. I can't tell them apart, they're like human barbies, all fluff, no substance. Obviously only hired for their looks.

I completely agree .... I can barely tell those two blonde "Barbies" apart .... and yes, they were obviously chosen for their looks -- while Ann Curry was apparently fired for hers. Despicable misogynist males in charge do this ALL the time!!
