How Long Was Matt Lauer On The Today Show?
Reportedly, Matt Lauer was on The Today Show for 20 years of his life.
He joined NBC in 1992 as a co-anchor of the early weekday news show Today in New York on the network's New York flagship station WNBC.
In between 1998 and 2017, he also co-hosted NBC's live coverage of Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. However, on November 29, 2017, Lauer's employment termination was announced after an unidentified female NBC employee reported inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.
What Is He Doing Now?
Lauer left New York City almost immediately after he got fired.
He reportedly headed first to his 16-year-old son's prep school. He was then spotted in the Hamptons with his wife, Annette Roque, and two younger children. Meanwhile, it appears that the former television personality is staying low-key at the moment and therefore not much is known about him.
