Matt Lauer was reported to have a secret under desk button which allegedly could lock his office door. Despite his behavior and misconduct, he was one of the most known faces in the network: which probably kept him going for so long.
But after the news of his behavior started surfacing Matt was let go and now is reportedly replaced by another veteran reporter: Hoda Kotb. Looks like the show NBC Today found a way to save its existence but the veteran reporter, philanthropist and a cancer fighter Kotb is reportedly hired for a lesser amount than that of Matt.
Matt reported bagged around $20 to 25 million from the hit show whereas Hoda is reportedly getting around $7 million which sounds illogical and unjust.
But being asked about the situation Hoda replied to the Vanity Fair:
The answer is no—that’s not happening. I know it sounds ridiculous that I’m going to say this,” Kotb continued, “but I really have done jobs I liked for the job I liked because I never wanted to be happy every other Friday on pay day. Like, I didn’t want that to be the happy day. I wanted to feel good throughout. So no, I’m not making Matt Lauer money. Not even close.
Well, its a complete honest answer from the Hoda but media outlet seem to be angry about it. It is hightlighted by all outlates as the straight case of Sexism but if Hoda is someone that completely fit's Matt's place then the channal should actually be willing to pay a logical sum, but despite everything we want to congratulate Hoda on her recent acheavement in the show.
