Oh yeah, they're totally after Ryan Seacrest. But they don't wanna lose Matt Lauer, either.
In fact, they say the #1 priority is keeping Matt on even though his contract ends in December.
Bob Greenblatt came out with an official statement just to silence the rumors betting on Matt's boot:
The No. 1 priority is keeping Matt on the Today show.
[Ryan's] become an incredible star, He’s a great asset for the company at large.
So no more worries, Lauer lovers, you can have your cake and eat it too!!
NBC might want Ryan to do something like Barbara Walters and host their very own kind of special interview show.
