NBC to refuse Matt Lauer payout

NBC News will refuse to pay “Today” show host Matt Lauer, fired over sexual misconduct allegations, for the remainder of his contract, the network confirmed to The Hill on Friday.

Lauer “will not be paid past his last day of work,” CNN first reported, following a separate report that lawyers representing Lauer were seeking another $30 million from the network.

Attorneys for the former host are pushing for NBC to pay out the remainder of his $20 million per year contract with the popular morning entertainment and news program, which was set to expire in mid 2019.

Two sources near him told CNN that it was doubtful that Lauer, who has expressed remorse over his actions, would push the network for a payout.
