Is the Today show going through more cast changes??
It seems like only yesterday that fan favorite Ann Curry was cut from the morning show, but it looks like things are still a bit shaky under the Peacock's wing.

According to an NBC insider, co-hosts Willie Geist and Natalie Morales were just told they were flat-out fired!
Only, they may not be out the door just yet!
From what we hear, the executive behind the decision was NBC newcomer Jamie Horowitz, who had just become general manager in September.
And now multiple sources are reporting that it's Horowitz himself that's packing his bags!
Apparently the decision to get rid of two well-liked anchors was a rogue one and seems to have been the last straw for NBC, who have fired Horowitz after just 10 weeks of his 3-year contract.
Horowitz may be gone, but according to NBC it sounds like Willie and Natalie will be staying right where they are! A rep denied them getting the boot and said:
"We have a strong anchor team we want here for a long time."
Wow! We're glad to hear it. Especially since they aren't even the co-hosts that everyone seems to dislike.
(Let's just say it rhymes with "Flat Hour." LOLz!)
