Matt Lauer's Salary May Cost Jobs!

Matt Lauer Salary May Cost Jobs

Matt Lauer's role on the Today show may be getting reduced, but his pay sure isn't!

In fact, an NBC insider says the morning host won't even take a salary cut if it means saving jobs! The source says:

"TODAY show staffers are convinced there will be significant job losses because of the cost-cutting measures that are being done across the board by Comcast, which now owns a majority stake in NBC. The crew believes that some of the potential cuts could be avoided if Matt agreed to a pay cut."

Can just one man's salary really make a difference? How much can the morning show host make anyway? The insider says:

"Matt's salary is a whopping $30 million dollars a year, and it’s seriously crippling the show. But he has made it pretty clear that he won’t take a pay decrease, so instead the staffers are in line for the chop."

WHAT million dollars?? 30 WHAT dollars?? 30 million WHAT??

If he really makes that much and won't take a pay cut to save jobs, we don't know what to do! Except maybe hope he gets visited by three ghosts this Christmas! LOLz!

There's been a bloodbath at NBC!

Some of the network's insiders are whispering about a recent job massacre at The Tonight Show, where 20-25 employees lost their jobs!

Show-host Jay Leno was said to have taken a HUGE pay cut to save as many jobs as he could, but obviously it wasn't enough to spare everyone!

Even producers had to choose between pay cuts or lost jobs! Dayum…

But why??? It's not like their ratings suck over there!!

Still, an NBC insider says:

Men's U.S. Soccer Coach Fired

Bummer!

Bob Bradley, the head coach of the men's national soccer team, has been fired just one year after renewing his contract to continue coaching through 2014!

U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulat said in a statement:

"We want to thank Bob Bradley for his service and dedication to U.S. Soccer during the past five years. During his time as the head coach of our Men's National Team he led the team to a number of accomplishments, but we felt now was the right time for us to make a change. It is always hard to make these decisions, especially when it involves someone we respect as much as Bob. We wish him the best in his future endeavors."

After taking over the position in 2007, Bradley's record is 43-25-12 overall and helped lead the team to the Round of 16 during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

We hope the change will at least bring about a longer run, if not a total victory, at the next men's World Cup!
