The pay gap is real.  Hoda Kotb may have landed the gig of her dreams when she was chosen as the new co-anchor for the first two hours of the Today show, but she will not be paid the same as her counterparts. Despite hosting both the first two hours of the show as well as the fourth hour with Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda will still make the same amount as her co-anchor, Savannah Guthrie, sources told Page Six. Plus, the salary is $18 million less than that of her predecessor, Matt Lauer!

NBC sources told Page Six that Hoda has landed a $7 million-a-year deal, the same as Savannah.

However, an insider told Page Six that Hoda “isn’t complaining.” “Matt’s salary reflected the long time he was on the show — 25 years. If things go well, Hoda could ask for more next time if she re-ups her contract,” the source said.
