Kotb previously stepped in as a replacement for Lauer, who was sacked in late November of previous year for what NBC called "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace". "I think that we should send some medics to Alexandria, Va., where my mom has likely fainted".

Lauer responded the day after he was terminated by sharing his own statement, which said, "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions". The timing is important for NBC, because Today will get a burst of attention next month with the Winter Olympics. Indeed, Kotb is a beloved figure, and her presence will be warmly regarded (although perhaps not quite to the degree as an Ann Curry return would have been, yet Curry's probably no longer interested).
