Moments earlier, Savannah Guthrie had mentioned Olbermann’s headline-making departure from Current TV as part of her news rundown before segueing to Lauer, Roker and Ann Curry with a quip about mid-life crises.
Curry addressed recent speculation that Lauer would be leaving the morning show, announcing that he’d be staying on with the show as per his recent long-term deal with NBC.
Roker responded by joking that Lauer is like Olbermann, and launched into an impression of the polarizing news host doing the segment for which he’s probably known best, shouting “You’re the worst person in the world!”
Maybe Roker should add this one to his SNL audition tape.
