‘Today’ show co-host Matt Lauer “has re-signed his contract with the NBC morning show — [the New York Post’s] Page Six has exclusively learned — which will keep him as co-host for at least two more years at $20 million per year.”

The Post story adds, “‘The new deal will take him well into 2018,’ said a source familiar with the deal. But another NBC insider said that Lauer’s new ‘multiyear’ pact could actually be longer.”

The Post story, by Ian Mohr and Emily Smith, also says “Meanwhile, sources told Page Six that behind the scenes, Noah Oppenheim — the executive in charge at “Today” — is weighing re-signing his own contract, which is ending in early 2017.”

Furthermore, the piece notes that “‘Today’ has been on a ratings roll recently, beating ‘GMA’ as No. 1 with adults in the coveted 25-to-54-year-old demographic for 63 of the past 64 weeks.”
