Matt Lauer Is NOT Leaving Today

Matt Lauer Not Leaving Today Show

Rumors have been circulating that Matt Lauer plans on leaving Today when his contract expires in 2012.

In fact, sources have even named ABC's Chris Cuomo as a possible replacement should Matt Lauer decide to leave.

However, Today's executive producer, Jim Bell, is called the rumors "ludicrous" in a recent interview and calls the reports simple "speculation".

When asked if Matt Lauer had informed the producer about his plans to depart the show in 2012, Bell responded:

"Absolutely not. I think that one is more ludicrous. When we're talking about something that is almost two years away, it's silly speculation. I think it's great that the show can generate this much attention and passion out there but we're fortunate that so much of it has been wrong and misguided."

He seems like a pret-ty good authority on the subject matter, so we'll trust this guy when he says Matt Lauer doesn't have any plans to go anywhere.

And why would he? Today has just reached a record 800 consecutive weeks as the #1 morning news show!

Congratulations! That's A LOT of consecutive weeks, but we're sure the show has plenty more of #1 weeks ahead!
