Today show host Matt Lauer read a brief statement about Billy Bush’s exit from the program during Tuesday morning’s broadcast.
“NBC News announced last night that Billy Bush would be leaving the Today show effective immediately, noting that he was a valued colleague and longtime member of the broader NBC family,” Lauer said. And, of course, all of us here at Today wish Billy the very best.”
Billy Bush and NBC have reached a financial settlement on his “Today” contract which officially ended his employment with the network after the Donald Trump tape leaked. “A statement Billy released separately last night read in part, ‘I look forward to what lies ahead.’
I guess we’ll soon see if Bush will bounce back after all of this drama.
