An on-air personality at NBC’s “Today” show who has been with the network’s news division for more than a decade is leaving the network. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeff Rossen, who wanted to expand his “Rossen Reports” branded consumer segments into a multiplatform franchise, is headed out.
“His contract was up last week, multiple sources told The Hollywood Reporter, and the parties could not come to terms on a new deal,” THR reports.
The report cites network sources saying Rossen is leaving on good terms, with the plan being for him to stay on until mid-January. Additionally, his team of producers will remain with NBC News, THR notes.
“He is still in production on multiple ‘Rossen Reports’ segments, which air on ‘Today’ and ‘Nightly News,’ and he will take the ‘Rossen Reports’ trademark with him,” THR adds.
