A day of television departures continues. Following on the heels of Glenn Beck leaving Fox News, Entertainment Tonight reports that Matt Lauer will leave the Today show when his contract expires at the end of 2012.

The news of Lauer's possible departure comes on the heels of reports that his co-host Meredith Vieira will also leave the hit morning show. If he does leave, it's thought that Lauer will team back up with Katie Couric on her new talk show; Couric will reportedly leave her position as CBS evening news anchor in the coming months. It's musical chairs, anchor-style!
