Zinni, interned for the show in 1997, the first year Lauer became a co-host, the rumors began from a follower on Tuesday explaining what his impression of Lauer was.
Lauer, who infrequently responds to Twitter mentions, saw the post and responded.
@markzinni huh? Always tried to be nice Mark. Sorry you didn'tthink so. Hope you're doing well.Matt — Matt Lauer (@MLauer) March 27, 2013
It seems to a tough time for Lauer, as his future is not certain in the “Today” show. There was a report by Deadline Hollywood that CNN host Anderson Cooper was contacted to replace Lauer when his contract expires in 2014.
He is widely blamed for the firing of the beloved Ann Curry, just after a year. Also for the dipped ratings that put the series behind morning show rival "Good Morning America."
While there are reports that claim Lauer, himself is considering switching networks and moving to ABC.
