Now hold on...how much are you bringing home from your job? Thank goodness I really like my job but If I made more money that certainly wouldn't hurt...no what I mean....
Hoda Kotb's got Matt Lauer's job, but not his salary.
The 53-year-old has officially replaced Lauer as the host of the Today show after he was fired for sexual misconduct in the workplace. Talking to People magazine, she says she and co-anchor Savannah Guthrie won't be making Matt's reported $20 million a year. “The answer is no — that’s not happening,” Hoda says. “For either of us.”
The women are reportedly each making $7 million. Which ain't chicken feed.
But for Hoda it's not about the money. She says, "I really have done jobs I liked for the job ... because I never wanted to be happy every other Friday on pay day. Like, I didn’t want that to be the happy day. I wanted to feel good throughout."
According to Business Insider, Megyn Kelly makes $18 million a year, Kelly Ripa earns $22 million and Good Morning America co-hosts Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos take in $15 million and $18 million, respectively. Daytime TV's best paid-hosts are both women: Judge Judy ($47 million) and Ellen DeGeneres ($50 million).
