Page Six reports that "Comcast chiefs have been seeking a replacement for Lack." The 71-year-old Lack, who previously served as NBC News president, returned to NBC News in 2015 following the Brian Williams debacle. But all hasn't been well under Lack's watch over the past year and a half. There have been sexual harassment scandals involving Matt Lauer and Tom Brokaw. There was also his decision to lure Megyn Kelly with a $20 million-a-year deal. Meanwhile, Today is No. 2 among morning shows.
