Disgraced former ‘Today’ show host Matt Lauer is reportedy plotting a comeback with a “big TV interview.”
As The New York Post reports:
Matt Lauer is angling for a “big TV interview” to be the next step in his return to the public eye.
After popping back into the news with a controversial op-ed deriding Ronan Farrow’s reportage in his bombshell book “Catch and Kill” — and getting a new tattoo — Lauer is “talking about doing a big TV interview,” Us Weekly is reporting.
The former “Today” anchor, 62, is angling to get on the air sooner rather than later, the magazine notes, citing another source who holds that Lauer’s friends are “trying to convince him to record the interview himself so he has edit control.”
Purportedly, the interview is timed not just to follow the op-ed, but also to capitalize on the empty TV studios that have become one hallmark of the coronavirus pandemic. “[With] no studio audience, it could be a less hostile venue,” Us Weekly’s source says.
Will Lauer’s attempted comeback work, or be an epic flop? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
