NBC Firing Matt Lauer's former 'Allies' from 'Today'; Could Giada De Laurentiis be the next?

NBC Firing Matt Lauer's former 'Allies' from 'Today'; Could Giada De Laurentiis be the next?

NBC is trying to remove the backstage allies of Matt Lauer, seven weeks after . NBC recently released a statement some days back and revealed that show's executive producer, Don Nash has decided to quit his role in the network.

NBC's News chairperson Andy Lack wrote:

With this change in anchors, and having rethought some of his priorities, Don Nash has decided to step away from his Executive Producer role at TODAY.

Don worked for the network for past 30 years and will be succeeded by a veteran 'Today' producer Libby Leist. Leist is believed to have a good relationship with co-anchor Savannah Guthrie.

However, in a report published by Page Six, an anonymous source revealed that the reason behind Don's exit is something different. The source said:

Don is one of the nicest guys in the business, but he was part of ‘Matt’s club’ headed by [former ‘Today’ EP] Jim Bell. They deny covering up for Matt, but they certainly catered to him, and they are very much entrenched in Lauer’s legacy.

Several women came forward with the allegations of misconduct against Matt Lauer. However, Don Nash denied of having any knowledge about those accusations.

Hoda Kotb is the host of the 'Today' show since the departure of Lauer. Since then, Today has beat Good Morning America of ABC for seven straight weeks in ratings.

Some of the insiders believe that the next to see the door of the network could be Food Network host Giada De Laurentiis. Lauer was rumored to have an affair with De Laurentiis in 2011. De Laurentiis has denied the rumor of her possible exit.
