    Hoda Kotb gets Matt Lauers job, but at a fraction of the pay

    Social media isnt happy over this...

    Hoda Kotb will make roughly $18 million per year less than disgraced male predecessor Matt Lauer, and about $13 million less than fellow "Today" anchor Megyn Kelly, despite doing significantly more work than both, according to the New York Post, raising the ire of some viewers.

    Kotb will earn $7 million per year, according to the Post, while Lauer reportedly made $25 million, and Kelly makes around $20 million. The pervy Lauer, who was fired last year for sexual misconduct, was typically out the door when his show wrapped up at 9 a.m. and he only worked four days a week most of the time. Not only will Kotb replace Lauer from 7-9 a.m., but she will also continue to co-host the 10 a.m. hour with Kathie Lee Gifford. Kotbís day will now end at 11 a.m., meaning she is literally working twice as much as Lauer did for significantly less cash.

    While Kotb appears happy to have the spotlight that comes with co-hosting the flagship program, itís safe to ponder if she will eventually get jealous of Kelly, who hosts the fledgling 9 a.m. hour wedged in between Kotbís two gigs.

    I'm sure there's room for a raise after her first year.

    Like many other jobs, if she's good she'll make more in the future.

    She's gonna be in the big spotlight now, and good luck to her.

    Does she get to drink wine on the air during the Today Show?

    I just hope she can survive on "only" $7 million per year.

    The problem here is a media position isn't paid by the hour or task, your value to the network is based on how many people tune into the show because of you. Prior to being exposed, Lauer was very popular with viewers.

    They don't get paid by how much they work. They are paid according to ratings. If she rakes them in the way the others did/do, she will be compensated accordingly.

    Neither have I, and that is indeed Hoda Kotb's problem -- lack of celebrity.

    Still, as Miller47 implied, she'll probably manage to scape by on a measly $7 Million per year.

    If Matt was making 25 and Savannah made 7, then Savannah and Hota should have been both bumped to 10.
