Hoda Kotb’s New Salary Won’t Measure Up To Fired Matt Lauer’s
According to PageSix, nothing about Hoda’s salary will be commensurate with this historical event.
Lauer was bringing home $25 million a year for his work. Hoda will make just $7 million per year. That leaves $18 million on the table…for what exactly? Even if it was just for PR sake, one might think that NBC might take the money they were paying Lauer to sexually assault their female employees and divvy up the dollars among Hoda and co-host Savannah Guthrie.
Not like it would cost them EXTRA money, but alas, the ladies still get the short end of the stick even when the company can clearly afford to pay them more.
It is reported that Lauer sent Hoda a congratulatory text message. Gee, thanks.
