Craig Melvin in the Running to Replace Matt Lauer at 'Today,' Source Says

Craig Melvin in the Running to Replace Matt Lauer at 'Today,' Source Says
Et has learned that Today weekend co-host Craig Melvin is in the running to replace Matt Lauer as co-host of Today.

A source at the show tells Et that both NBC and staff are fans of 38-year-old Melvin. Melvin currently anchors MSNBC Live on weekdays, and is co-anchor of Today Saturday edition.

“This would give the network the opportunity to make Melvin into a star at NBC,” the source says. “This would be clean slate.”

Melvin has been married to Espn sports anchor Lindsay Czarniak since 2011. The couple has two children together.

As for the possibility that Hoda Kotb would replace Lauer, our source says that would be “highly doubtful,” as Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford’s Today hour is already a huge success, and they wouldn't want to change the dynamic.

Still, there are other potential replacements in the running. Our source says that Willie Geist -- who frequently serves as a fill-in anchor on Today --
