Matt Lauer, who got the boot from his longtime post on NBC’s “Today” show in November over sexual harassment allegations, says he will be back on TV, according to The New York Post’s Page Six.
The report says Lauer was overheard at his “old haunt,” Donohue’s Steak House, telling fans he will be returning.
The report quotes a source saying: “A group of older ladies came over to Lauer, saying, ‘We miss you!’”
According to the source, Lauer told the fans: “I’ve been busy being a dad. But don’t worry, I’ll be back on TV.”
Other reports have also hinted at a possible Lauer comeback.
“He also apparently still has some supporters in broadcasting: Page Six reported in June that Lauer was seen at lunch with a former ‘Today’ senior producer,” The Post reports, adding: “He’s increasingly been spotted in public on the Hamptons social scene, though many residents have called his look while out and about ‘incognito.’”
