They're on TV every morning, afternoon, and evening, giving viewers all the latest news in business, entertainment, and politics.#35 Matt Lauer
Co-anchor of NBC's "Today"
Lauer isn't the buzziest personality on air, and he's hardly the nicest — the 18-year veteran of "Today" was pretty cold to ousted co-host Ann Curry, and is the "least-trusted" anchor in America, according to a Reader's Digest poll.
But he's in great shape for his age, and last year landed a reported $25 million annual contract with NBC after threatening to leave for ABC.
