Today celebrated the show’s 25-year anniversary with a commemorative video, but Matt Lauer wasn’t invited to the party.
Lauer was on the show from 1997 until 2017 when he was fired after allegations of sexual misconduct from multiple women. So that meant they didn’t include him at all in the nearly 6-minute video trip down memory lane.
“Wow, 25 years. Has it really been 25 years? The plaza was reopened and it was a big deal, and Bryant [Gumbel] and Katie [Couric] were out there,” Savannah Guthrie, 47, said in the video before a throwback clip of Gumbel and Couric appeared.
