Might Hoda Kotb be trying to jump off a sinking ship?
With ratings continuing to spiral for Today, and with Matt Lauer under constant siege by the press, sources tell Entertainment Weekly that Hotb has been talking to other networks about job possibilities.
Her contract expires this fall.
“Hoda loves her job… adores everyone she works with on the show,” an insider tells EW. “Her contract is coming up and she’s just expanding relationships and having coffee with a few people.”
That’s always how it starts, though, isn’t it?
Kotb has been with Today since 2007, but a previous story recounted how there’s tension between her and co-host Kathie Lee Gifford over just where their hour of the series ought to air, New York or Los Angeles.
We already know Kotb has a landing strip. But will she land somewhere new in 2014?
Would you miss Hoda Kotb if she left Today?
