Is NBC’s long running morning news program ‘Today’ about to get a major facelift?

Over the past couple of days, news has circulated that hosts Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira plan to leave the show when their contracts expire. Lauer in particular was at the center of Internet rumors today after reports claimed he had informed NBC executives of his departure, which would be in Dec. 2012.

However, NBC has since denied the reports, saying, “There seems to be an awful lot of speculation around news anchors these days, and it’s not our practice to comment on any of it. Matt Lauer has a long-term contract with NBC News and TODAY.”

The rumors certainly come at an interesting moment in television. In addition rumors about Vieira’s departure, news broke earlier this week that Lauer’s former ‘Today’ co-host, Katie Couric, will soon be leaving her post at ‘CBS Evening News.’

Sound off: Will Matt Lauer leave today — and should he?
