Sources tell the the celebrity news website that the beleaguered host is blaming NBC executives for botching Ann Curry’s departure. He realizes his image has taken a severe hit as many viewers blame him for Curry’s exit.
“This has been a public relations nightmare for pretty much everyone associated with the show, but Matt has clearly been singled out. He knows he won’t be staying at NBC once his contract expires and he’s concerned that he won’t have the career opportunities he had before this whole fiasco started. His image has taken a huge hit and it would be very unlikely Matt would be able to have his own talk show now, which has always been his goal. Women just wouldn’t tune in to watch because of the Ann Curry debacle,” the unnamed source said to Radar Online
