Today Staff Loves Lauer

Kathie Lee Gifford, who hosts the fourth hour of NBC's Today show with Hoda Kotb, collected the signatures of hundreds of Today show staffers to support Matt Lauer against accusations that he engineered the firing of Ann Curry as his co-host of the first two hours of Today, the New York Daily News disclosed today (Friday). We the people of the 'Today' show who work side by side, day by day, year in and year out with Matt Lauer are tired of unfounded and unrelenting stories by faceless characters regarding his character and reputation, the statement read. No one has coerced us to sign this. With our signatures we stand in support of our colleague and friend. Gifford said that she had planned to buy a full-page ad in USA Today to run the letter but that Lauer dissuaded her from doing so. She told he Daily News that he was deeply touched but asked her to keep the matter in the family and not buy the ad. Conspicuously absent from the signatures on the ad was that of Ann Curry. Gifford explained that she has not seen Curry since she left the show. She's just not part of (the show) day-in and day-out anymore. This wasn't about Ann, this is about our love and support for a different member of our family.
