    Chop Chop! NBC Golden Boy Matt Lauer Regularly Helicoptered Out To The Hamptons, As Part Of New Contract Terms With Network

    NBC executives, looking to satisfy Matt Lauer after a few bumpy years in their ratings battle with Good Morning America, are paying for a helicopter to take him to and from the Hamptons “so he can spend more time with his family,” RadarOnline.com has learned.

    “NBC News chiefs want to do everything to keep Matt happy,” an insider told the NY Post of the transportation stipulation in the contract extension the veteran inked with the network in June, in which Lauer will collect $20 million annually through 2016.

    Network execs “believe TODAY has turned a corner and he is the key to its continuing success,” sources told the paper, adding that the handsome host files back and forth from the New York City to the ritzy East Coast enclave as many as three times a week, in copters from companies such as Liberty, HeliFlite and Blade.

    A TODAY spokesperson implied that it wasn’t that often, telling the paper that “on rare occasions, Matt will fly home, but most of the time you’ll find him stuck in traffic on the Long Island Expressway with everyone else.”

    Lauer, who lives in the Hamptons all year long, cleared up misconceptions about the well-heeled area speaking to TODAY co-star Hoda Kotb in a Hamptons magazine piece.

    “I think the image that people have is that it’s all polo fields and cocktail parties,” Lauer said. “We have a painfully-normal existence out here, and I think some people would be rather shocked by that.

    “It is very much small-town America — it just happens to have a reputation and a name like the Hamptons,” he said of the area, which also boats celebrity residents such as Jerry Seinfeld and Howard Stern.

    Robin, NBC has demanded that I take a helicopter from Sirius to Radio City Music Hall as I am America's Judge.

    But Howard, that is 479 feet from here according to google maps.

    Robin, have you tried Squatty Potty? I love this thing.

    "Most of the time you’ll find him stuck in traffic on the Long Island Expressway with everyone else.”

    He can afford to fly back and forth but, he'd rather add to the horrible traffic.

    Selfish prick.

    NBC is constantly whining about global warming as they face fuck the planet.

    The annual 'Where is Matt?' is the ultimate unnecessary raping of the planet.

    It is amazing how these overpaid celebs and media darlings view their lavish lifestyles and upscale "neighborhoods". Matt Lauer has certainly done well for himself...he didn't even graduate from college and was considered to be a slacker party boy when he was at Ohio University. He even showed up drunk at his job as an intern at a local TV station when he was still at OU. No one took him seriously back then and even when he was just starting out in New York.

    he obviously knew the right dicks to suck. he is a cipher, devoid of any kind of talent or personality. a smug douche who stepped in shit and for some inexplicable reason makes 20 million a year.

    First off, man-made climate change is bullshit. It's been proven that cited data was deliberately fudged to keep grant dollars rolling in. That said, I don't want to hear ANYBODY on NBC crying about "global warming." Hypocritical fuckers.
