Steve Capus On ‘Today’ Switch: ‘This was my call’

NBC News president Steve Capus responds to the New York Daily News, which reported Matt Lauer was behind the decision to elevate Don Nash at “Today,” instead of bringing on someone from outside the show like MSNBC producer Izzy Povich.

“Matt doesn’t make editorial decisions and he did not spike anything,” Capus told Kaplan.

“This was my call, I spoke to lots of talented people from both cable and network, and in the end went with someone I believed was best suited for the job,” said Capus.
