Things just keep getting worse for Matt Lauer. Hard on the heels of a scathing article in New York magazine, a former Today show intern revealed on his Cleveland news program that Lauer didn't treat him very kindly during his time at the morning show.
When asked on-air by a colleague about his experience interning at Today in 1997, anchorman Mark Zinni responded "How do I say this....? He was... Not nice."
The comment went viral when Zinni's colleague tweeted his words and eventually reached the Today anchor himself. Matt responded by tweeting, "@MarkZinni huh? Always tried to be nice Mark. Sorry you didn't think so. Hope you're doing well. Matt."
Mark reacted to the apology saying, "Bottom line, I was shocked Matt Lauer even bothered with me and, really, he remembers me? I'm flattered."
