NBC Offers Vieira $10 Million A Year; Deal Should Be Done By This Weekend

The New York Times says: “NBC moved close today to reaching agreement with Meredith Vieira of ABC to replace Ms. Couric as co-host of the Today show, a person who had been briefed on the negotiations said early this afternoon…

Under the terms of the deal, which could be completed as soon as this evening but is expected to be resolved no later than week’s end, Ms. Vieira would sign a four-year contract worth at least $10 million a year and would take up her morning assignment on NBC just after Labor Day, said the person, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because negotiations were ongoing.”
