"You know what? I actually had a little crush on Matt when he was the local news anchor on WNBC, because I thought he was so funny and so quick," Couric told Stern.

Couric confessed her previous crush for Lauer after being teased by Stern, who was asking her if she ever had feelings for him.

Couric revealed in the same interview that she was approached several times to return to the "Today" show after she left the program in 2006 to anchor the CBS Evening News.

"There were some cautious overtures to me to possibly come back to the 'Today' show," Couric told Stern.

When asked if returning to the "Today" show is a possibility, Couric responded saying, "Part of me, for me that was the best job."

After Couric's departure from the "Today" show, the morning program experienced a significant drop in viewership once co-host Ann Curry joined Lauer.

Last March, Lauer revealed that he tried to resign from the show in 2012 because of the show's decline, according to the Daily Beast.

 "You don't have to be Einstein to know that, it clearly did not help us," Lauer told the Daily Beast in an interview while responding to questions about Couric's departure.

"We were seen as a family, and we didn't handle a family matter well."

The possibility of Couric returning to the show remains uncertain.
