*Al Roker appeared to take a dig at his own “Today” show co-host and producers on live television Thursday for the way they treated former co-host Ann Curry.
Roker, Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie and Tamron Hall were wrapping up an interview with members of the U.S. women’s rowing team when the tradition of a winning team throwing their coxswain into the water was discussed.
Lauer mentioned how the tradition in New York is to throw her into the Hudson River.
Quipped Roker: “Which is different than our tradition, which is you throw one of us under the bus, but that’s another story.”
Lauer and Guthrie then playfully scolded Roker.
“Today” fired co-anchor Ann Curry less than two months ago amid a ratings slump.
