Lauer To Shun Exotic Travel, Going On U.s. Roads

Like many Americans, Matt Lauer will be cutting back on his travel plans this year. NBC said over the weekend that instead of visiting exotic spots for his "Where in the World Is Matt Lauer?" feature, he'll be staying closer to home, with a feature titled "Today Takes a Vacation" replacing it. Executive Producer Jim Bell said that when the show asked viewers for suggestions for this season's "Where in the World" feature, many responded that an expensive trip abroad sent the wrong message during the economic downturn. The "Vacation" feature will reportedly emphasize budget travel. "It may also save NBC News a little cash," commented Broadcasting & Cable magazine.
