Tiki Gone from NBC?

tiki_nbc_6-23.jpgBuried in a Page Six item today, which chronicles the latest mudslinging between Tiki Barber and his soon-to-be-ex-wife, is word that NBC has ended its relationship with the former-NFL player. Page Six writes, quoting a source from the Barber camp:

The buddy confirmed that Tiki, who had been working as a NBC’s “Today Show” correspondent, has “parted ways with NBC” on the heels of the scandal. That job paid him an estimated $300,000 annually.

NBC would not comment on the accuracy of the report, nor would the network confirm if Barber is still employed by NBC News. A spokesperson merely told us, “We are not commenting.”

Barber was still a contributor to the “Today” show as of late April.
