Matt Lauer has a pretty awesome position on the Today Show.
He gets to interview celebrities like Ariana Grande, he gets to meet cute babies, and ya know, be on TV everyday doing crazy stuff!
But there's one perk to his $20 million a year job that makes us SUPER jealous.
NBC foots the bill whenever Matt wants to take a helicopter to work from the Hamptons, where he lives, to New York City!
How crazy is that!
"NBC News chiefs want to do everything to keep Matt happy. They believe Today has turned a corner and he is the key to its continuing success. They agreed to pay for his helicopter flights to the Hamptons and back, so he can spend more time with his family."
Oh man! We can't even believe that!
Some sources said that he's flying to and from the Hamptons up to three times a week, but others are saying the trips are far fewer.
A rep for the Today show did say:
"On rare occasions, Matt will fly home, but most of the time you'll find him stuck in traffic on the Long Island Expressway with everyone else."
Well, even if he's not flying that frequently, it IS true that NBC pays the bill for the helicopter rides!
What a nice perk! No traffic!
