While the news is still playing out on the future of NBC's Tonight Show, with Jimmy Fallon set to succeed Jay Leno, now comes the revelation that the network's half-a-billion-dollar-a-year morning franchise, the Today show, nearly lost its No. 1 star: Matt Lauer.
Though currently the show is going through a turbulent period in the aftermath of Ann Curry's departure and its ratings slip to ABC rival Good Morning America, Lauer, 55, was set to jump ship to ABC last year, when reports surfaced that Ryan Seacrest was possibly going to replace him on Today, reports New York magazine, in the issue hitting newsstands Monday.

Former Miss Alabama Katherine Webb says ESPN announcer Brent Musberger doesn't owe her an apology after he singled her out on Monday night's BCS Championship football game – where she was watching her boyfriend, star quarterback AJ McCarron, lead Alabama to a runaway victory over Notre Dame.
Webb's profile on Twitter went white hot on Monday – from 2,000 followers to nearly 200,000 – as Musberger, 73, took to the airways during the game to extol the beauty queen's good looks and her relationship with McCarron.
The couple, who met on Twitter, have been dating for a month.
Quickly, however, viewers and others criticized Musberger's effusive praise as "creepy."

President Barack Obama was named Time's Person of the Year Wednesday morning, making him a rare repeat winner. He was similarly honored in 2008, after he won election as the nation's first African-American President.
The magazine says Obama, 51, was chosen "[for] finding and forging a new majority, for turning weakness into opportunity and for seeking, amid great adversity, to create a more perfect union."
In addition, the newsmagazine (which, like PEOPLE is published by Time Inc.), states: "He will take the oath on Jan. 20 as the first Democrat in more than 75 years to get a majority of the popular vote twice. Only five other Presidents have done that in all of U.S. history."

Richard Engel, chief foreign correspondent for NBC News, and two of his crewmembers escaped Monday after they were kidnapped, psychologically tortured and held in captivity for five days inside Syria, Engel – standing with his two colleagues in Antakya, Turkey – said in a live broadcast on Tuesday's Today show.
"It is good to be here," said Engel, looking fit and sounding erudite as ever. "I'm very happy that we're able to do this live shot this morning."
Engel, 39, was with producer Ghazi Balkiz and cameraman John Kooistra to report on the insurgency that is fighting President Bashar al-Assad in the troubled country. He said Tuesday, "We were driving in Syria about five days ago in what we thought was a rebel-controlled area. We were with some of the rebels."
Suddenly, he said, "a group of gunmen just literally jumped out of the trees and bushes on the side of the road. There were about 15 gunmen. They were wearing masks. They were heavily armed. They dragged us out of the car."
