Not a good weekend for Today’s host Billy Bush after that Access Hollywood tape was released on Friday.
As a result, NBC’s head honcho sent out a notice putting Bush on notice, suspending him from Today Show pending further review.
And here’s how they handled it this morning. First thing in the 7am hour Savannah Guthrie made this announcement, “We want to note one other thing: Pending further review of the matter, NBC News has suspended Billy Bush, who now hosts Today’s third hour, for his ole in the conversation with Donald Trump.”
Then the nine o clock hour rolled around which is the hour Billy actually co-hosts with Al Roker and Tamron Hall, where they talked about the debate, but not mention Bush.
Billy Bush also had something to say, on Friday he issued an apology saying he was, “embarrassed and ashamed” noting that, ‘It’s no excuse, but this happened eleven years ago, I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along.” Sources say that several Today Show staffers are not optimistic about his return, one source said, “He will never be on the show again.”
Well that remains to be seen.
