Matt Lauer’s TV career seemingly ended after he was fired from NBC following a sexual harassment complaint, however, a new report is claiming the anchor is hoping to make a comeback and land another gig on morning television.

The network announced Lauer was fired from his position at the “Today” show in November 2017. Since then, the anchor has kept a low profile as he reportedly works towards finalizing a divorce settlement with his wife Annette Roque.

Amid his low-key lifestyle, RadarOnline published an article claiming Lauer’s trip to Florida earlier this month was the first steps in his plan to return to TV.

An alleged source told the site the journalist stayed with Bryant Gumbel and his wife during his getaway. “Matt and Bryant are still extremely close friends,” the mysterious tipster revealed.

Following Kathie Lee Gifford’s “Today” show exit and NBC’s termination of Megyn Kelly, Lauer hopes he can return to morning television. “This might be Matt’s chance to show that he’s turned over a new leaf,” the supposed confidant claimed.

However, prior to this report, a source told People Lauer is focused on his kids and “is not thinking about working again right now.”

“He doesn’t sit around thinking about a comeback,” a second insider told the publication.

Lauer has not commented on reports suggesting a possible television comeback.
