This week, Hoda officially replaced Matt Lauer as co-host on “Today”. According to reports, Hoda is making significantly less than Matt. It’s speculated that the 53-year-old anchor is paid around $18 million less per year than Matt, who was fired over alleged inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace. Prior to being axed, Matt was allegedly making $25 million a year.

Reportedly, Hoda makes $7 million a year. This is said to be the same amount as co-host Savannah Guthrie. Hoda’s check may be significantly less than Matt’s, as he had been on the show for 20+ years.

As previously reported, Hoda will continue hosting with Kathie Lee Gifford at 10 a.m.

What are your thoughts on the salary gap between Hoda and Matt?
