Tiki Still Has ‘Today’ Gig

Tiki Barber still has his job as a “Today” correspondent despite the recent scandalous news that he was leaving his wife for a 23-year-old former NBC intern, according to a report in the New York Daily News:

“Tiki is a contributor to the ‘Today’ show,” an NBC News spokeswoman told The Daily News on Tuesday, refuting reports that Barber has been sacked by 30 Rock.

Earlier this week, the NY Post reported that Barber was “benched” by NBC execs after the news first broke. And Post writers heard from a source that the “Today” show had actually “booted Tiki as a high-priced correspondent.” That appears not to be the case for the moment, though it seems he hasn’t been on air for the program since January.
