Matt Lauer Pokes Fun At Bad Press At UJA Dinner

NBC “Today” co-anchor Matt Lauer poked some fun at the recent headlines at a UJA Federation of New York event Tuesday night. The event was honoring Bloomberg Media CEO Andrew Lack, who was previously the president of NBC News.

Page Six has some of the juicy quotes:

These days, I only get asked to host dinners if polio is busy. Yup, I have a lower Q rating than polio right now…”  Lauer introduced presenter Katie Couric with this zinger: “Katie has a way of making headlines. Who can forget when she was co-host of the ‘Today’ show? She got a colonoscopy on TV. Not to be outdone, two weeks ago, I got one in The New York Times.”
