On Wednesday, the Today show released a statement saying, "There seems to be an awful lot of speculation around news anchors these days, and it's not our practice to comment on any of it. Matt Lauer has a long term contract with NBC News and Today."

So that doesn't solve anything.

Instead, there's another rumor to discuss via Entertainment Tonight.

Since Katie Couric is rumored to be leaving CBS and launch a new talk show with former Today executive producer Jeff Zucker, could Matt be joining them?

What do you think? Do you think these are simply rumors or do you believe Matt and Meredith will really leave Today?
