6:53 pm, December 7th, 2011
NBC executives met with Seacrest on Tuesday to discuss the possibility of succeeding Lauer if the longtime co-anchor leaves his seat in 2012, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Seacrest-for-Lauer story was first reported by Mediaite back in August.
There have been no reported deals, or anything beyond preliminary conversations.
Gossip Cop has reached out to reps for both Seacrest and the “Today Show.”
We will have updates.
It’s important to note: Lauer may not be leaving, but NBC is having discussions about a potential succession plan should he decide to leave.
