Natalie Morales Rumors: Anchor Leaves ‘Today Show’?

Natalie Morales : Anchor Leaves ‘Today Show’?

Natalie Morales Fired Over Matt Lauer? ‘Today Show’ Rumors Called ‘Hog Wash’ By NBC.

According to a report by Page Six, “There’s rampant speculation within NBC News that Natalie Morales is being moved – against her will – off the Today show and over to Dateline. Hoda Kotb would replace Morales, a favorite of Matt Lauer, as the 7 to 9 a.m. newsreader. “They’ll try to position this as a ‘promotion’ for Natalie – but make no mistake, she’s not happy,” explains an insider.

The fact that Lauer loves Morales, so much so that rumors of them having an affair have circulated for years, will probably help to cement her spot at Today for awhile. An NBC official insists that there is no truth to the rumors and that Morales is considered to be a very important part of their morning team. If NBC’s morning team consistently loses out in the ratings to ABC then do you think that it is time for them to make some changes to their on-air talent?
