Matt Lauer, you’ve been served. By your very own co-worker.
During a segment on The Today Show this morning, Lauer, Al Roker and Savannah Guthrie were interviewing a few Olympic rowers when the topic turned to the latter’s post-race traditions, which include tossing teammates into the water. Joked the host:
“The tradition here in New York is you throw her in the Hudson River.”
Roker then jumped in with: “Which is different than OUR tradition … which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that’s another story.”
The anchors laughed, but everyone must have been aware of Roker’s reference: Lauer is considered the main reason why Ann Curry was unceremoniously fired from her Today Show post earlier this summer.
Oh, to have been a fly on the set wall when the show went to commercial.
