Net Worth and Salary
The 60 years old Matt started earning since 1997 when he first joined NBC and began hosting Today show. For someone who is in the field for two decades and more, his net value is not surprising enough. But, his annual salary might take your sense away.

This also ranked him before Bill O’Reilly, ex-Fox News anchor who too fell for misconduct and was fired. Sadly, he won’t be able to get his hands on this cash, as he has been fired.
Married Life, Affairs
Matthew married twice in his life. Before marrying his current spouse, he was in love relationship with Nancy Alspaugh which later turned into a married relationship. Nancy was American movie producer who started hooking up with Matt in 1980 (as per source.) But after some years, they started feeling awkward living together and decided to split. The duo parted ways in 1988.
Then, Lauer married for the second time with Annette Roque. The pair had an encounter in 1998 and began being attracted towards each other. In the same year, October, both agreed to be two sides of a coin and hitched. From this marriage, they together have three children. His children are Romy Lauer (daughter), Jack Matthew (eldest son) and Thijs Lauer (youngest son.)
It’s already been 19 years of married life, and yet there is no sign of divorce. Some speculate them to get divorced after the recent issue in his life; but stay strong, there love is far more powerful.
Before marrying his wife, Lauer dated three other ladies. The first one is Margaret Colin, back in 1991. The second lady he hooked with was Kristen Gesswein. And the third one is Tiffany Elliot.
