YESTERDAY (NET NEWS 4/3), ALL ACCESS reported RYAN SEACREST couldn't make his date with NBC's TODAY show due to "a little pain from elbow surgery." SEACREST was expected to announce he was on the verge of completing a new contract with NBC UNIVERSAL and detail an expanded relationship with the company.
SEACREST made it to TODAY this morning, and told MATT LAUER he was joining NBC as part of its OLYMPIC coverage. When pressed about rumors about taking over LAUER's job, he jokingly deflected that he saw himself doing the weather first.
LAUER said that he and SEACREST were good friends, and the two joked about SEACREST joining the TODAY SHOW, but the interview indicated there was "no there there."
