After more than two years of trying to avoid the spotlight, sources close to Matt Lauer claimed the disgraced anchor is beginning to plan his comeback to television.

In 2017, NBC fired Lauer after receiving a complaint from a female employee, who accused the “Today” anchor of inappropriate sexual behavior when the network sent them overseas to cover the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Following his termination, Lauer kept a low profile, but insiders told Us Weekly that the 62-year-old is done staying under the radar. “Matt’s talking about doing a big TV interview,” the source revealed.

A second insider told the publication that Lauer’s friends are “trying to convince him to record the interview himself so he has edit control.”

After news of the journalist’s inappropriate behavior circulated, Ronan Farrow’s book, “Catch and Kill,” provided further details about the alleged assault from Lauer’s accuser, Brooke Nevils.

However, in May, Lauer slammed Nevils’ account of their sexual encounter in a blog post on Mediaite.

“The rush to judgment was swift. In fact, on the morning I was falsely accused of rape, and before I could even issue a statement, some journalists were already calling my accuser ‘brave’ and ‘courageous,'” Lauer wrote.

“I was also disappointed, but not surprised, that Ronan Farrow’s overall reporting faced so little scrutiny.”

Although Lauer is still strategizing and plans to make a comeback, a source claimed that the coronavirus pandemic has given him a unique way to share his story.

“Given the timing of the pandemic and [the fact there’d be] no studio audience, it could be a less hostile venue,” the insider revealed.

Almost two years after the sexual misconduct allegations, Lauer and his ex-wife, Annette Roque, divorced. The former couple has three children together, sons, Jack and Thijs, and daughter, Romy.
