The Today show celebrated a major milestone on June 20. The morning show has been broadcasting out of Studio 1A for 25 years. The show aired a five-minute montage of some of their favorite moments from the last quarter century on the iconic plaza. But fans noticed that Matt Lauer was missing from the clips. The former anchor, who joined the show in 1994, was terminated from NBC in 2017 after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. Viewers were torn as to whether he should have been in the footage or not.
