MSNBC's Craig Melvin Being Considered to Replace Matt Lauer on 'Today'

Matt Lauer attends NBC's'Today at Rockefeller Plaza

(BROADCAST - OUT) of the United States poses for a photo on the Today show set on Copacabana Beach on August 13, 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

A NBC insider spoke to In Touch exclusively revealing that while the public may be shocked after learning about Matt Lauer's behavior at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, his indiscretion has been talked about for years - and one time in particular it ended with a nasty message left for the former Today show co-anchor in his dressing room.

After Lauer was ousted from his "Today" hosting gig in the wake of sexual harassment claims, word has it that "MSNBC Live" host Craig Melvin is among those being considered as his replacement.

"This would give the network the opportunity to make Melvin into a star at NBC". "This would be clean slate". Another alleged potential for the show could Willie Guest, who serves as a fill-in anchor for the show. Lauer's wife Annette Roque.

Matt Lauer steps out without his wedding ring in Sag Harbor, New York on December 6, 2017.

"Today" viewers that week saw the troubled reactions of hosts Savannah Gurthrie, Hoda Kotb, and Al Roker in realtime as they responded to the news their colleague had been fired following sexual misconduct accusations.

"I have no words for her husband", Henri reportedly told the publication. What he has done is bad. "Everybody feels betrayed", he told the outlet from his home in Amsterdam. "She is not going to stay with him and work it out". This contradicts Lauer's reports, that he and Roque were now taking it "day by day".

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Roque filed for divorce in 2006 when she was seven months pregnant, citing Lauer's "cruel and inhumane" treatment, but withdrew the divorce papers before their son was born six months later.
