New 'Today' Anchor Hoda Kotb Will Reportedly Make $7 Million

Hoda Kotb's New Today Salary Might Shock You — & Not in a Good Way

It seems that Kotb's pay is $18 million less than Lauer. "I'm not making Matt Lauer money". He was reportedly making as much as $28 million per year, far more than the $7 million salary the New York Post reports Kotb is now making.

'She's landed the big job she has always dreamed of, and definitely deserves...

According to an insider, the man's salary was a reflection of his long time as a co-host on the show, which was 25 years before his firing.

One former NBC employee alleged he asked her back to his office, where he pressed a button and locked the door, a function, it's been claimed, many exec offices have. 'This has to be the most popular decision NBC News has ever made'. Savannah joined NBC in 2011 and later became a Today co-anchor in 2012.

Guthrie joined NBC News as a correspondent in 2007 and has been the co-anchor of Today since 2012. Megyn Kelly is believed to have negotiated a salary of at least $17 million from NBC News, which snared her when her contract at Fox News Channel ended previous year.

Today show fans are probably not that surprised by NBC's decision to name Hoda Kotb as Savannah Guthrie's permanent co-anchor on the morning show.

Hoda Kotb, who has been filling in for Matt Lauer since he was sacked in late November for sexual misconduct, has been officially named co-anchor of NBC's Today show. Of course, Lauer was earning a whopping $25 million a year until he was sacked, meaning he was making more than three times as much as the women doing the same exact job.

She has been in various other shows besides The Today Show, including Your Total Health, a weekly syndicated show, and the Today fourth our co-host with Kathie Lee Gifford.

"I am pinching myself", said a beaming Kotb, sitting beside her. I wondered if now would be the time to subvert the formula of "male host/female host" that every morning show has (as do most news shows in general) and *gasp* have two female hosts!

A representative for the "Today Show" declined to comment to Page Six on anchor contracts. News. 'And he said some nice words'.

Kotb's costar Guthrie was also thrilled when the NBC announced who Lauer's replacement would be on the show.
