The New York Times is reporting that the end may be near for NBC Today show anchor Matt Lauer. 

Due to the bad handling of the Ann Curry departure back in June of 2012 and Matt’s likability score continually trending down with the Today show core audience, NBC may be looking to replace him soon.  Who are the possible replacements? Sources are saying either Willie Geist or David Gregory will fill the spot on the Today show couch.

A rep for NBC News had no comment about the Times story.
