- Matt Lauer has been sending “Today” show producers criticisms about recent episodes, according to Page Six.
- In one instance, he reportedly felt the wrong music was used to open a segment.
It seems Matt Lauer is still keeping a close eye on his old job.
The former “Today” show coanchor, who was fired by NBC in November after the network received a complaint of “inappropriate sexual behaviour in the workplace,” sent notes to show producers criticising certain aspects of recent episodes, according to Page Six.
Sources told Page Six that Lauer, who has been staying in the Hamptons and working on his marriage, has been sending messages detailing what he sees as mistakes on the show. In one instance, he reportedly sent a producer an email saying that he felt the show used the wrong music to start a segment.
Despite Lauer’s critical view, the show has flourished in ratings since the longtime host was fired. For the two weeks following Lauer’s departure, “Today” won the crucial first two hours among all the morning shows.
On Tuesday, NBC announced that Hoda Kotb would be Lauer’s permanent replacement as coanchor of “Today.”
Representatives for “Today” were not immediately available for comment.
