Ryan Seacrest might be the new Today show host


For the first time in 15 years, NBC needs to find a new male anchor for 'Today', since the always likeable Matt Lauer will step down when his contract ends at the end of next year.

Among NBCs top choices to replace him is Ryan Seacrest, who, according to this mornings Hollywood Reporter, had an informal meeting with the network this week to talk about it.

The move is already controversial however because Lauer was a real journalist, something that apparently gave Todays segments about cats in Halloween costumes real credibility.
