Matt Lauer: Demeaning and Dismissive of Today Show Staffers?

by at . Comments

Its no secret that Matt Lauer and Ann Curry did not get along well during the latter's tenure as co-host of Today.

But a new report suggests Curry has plenty of company in that regard, as an insider tells Radar Online:

“The way Matt treats staffers at work is so derogatory and dismissive... He is so demeaning to many people on the staff. He is cordial to his fellow hosts and the senior executives, but to anyone below him they say he treats them like dirt.”

Dirt, of course, could also describe ratings for the program, which consistently now loses out to Good Morning America.

And the source adds that Lauer's attitude is not helping in any way.

“So many people feel like he doesn’t even listen when they’re pitching stories or trying to break news. They say they could have the biggest breaking news of the year and Matt wouldn’t pay attention to them.”

Last week, Katie Couric admitted that she's had discussions about returning to Today and seems open to the idea.

It may be the only way to save what has become a sinking ship.
