Matt Lauer is Soo Yesterday, Anderson Cooper is TODAY!


It was made known earlier this week that Anderson Cooper may be one of Matt Lauer‘s replacements at the end of 2013. Although, Alexandra Wallace, an overseer at “Today,”denies these claims, I can’t help but think there’s a hint of truth to them. As someone who grew up watching Matt Lauer and Katie Couric every morning, I absolutely loved everything about the “Today” show, the energy and the people. This may be horrible to say, but I’m not at all sad about this decision. With Matt’s plagued image tainting the show, there is no doubt in my mind that he should be replaced. During the past couple years, the famous Today anchor has proven to be more of a thorn in the side of the show than anything else. Between his noteworthy disputes with guest on air, including Tom Cruise, or even his fellow co-host Ann Curry, Matt has definitely had more downs than ups during the past few years. Not only has he showed animosity on air, but off air as well. One of his former interns recently reported via Twitter that the journalist was everything but welcoming during his internship stating, “I was an intern there in ’97, his first year on the job…how do I say this?…he was…not nice.” Well, it’s good to know that the journalist hasn’t changed over the years. Maybe that’s the real reason why Katie Couric left?  Anyway, I’m positively thrilled to hear that NBC may be considering Cooper as one of Matt’s replacement, even if it is a rumor! As one of the main faces of CNN, a successful show host, and just an overall excellent journalist, Cooper is by far, the best choice!
