NBC knocking down Matt Lauer office taking down photos

NBC News is in the process of removing all memory of Matt Lauer from 30 Rock, destroying anything that bears his name and likeness. 

'Matt's office is being completely demolished. Everything is going, including that button under his desk, his name plate, the photos of him in the hallways, the pictures of him online and on NBC News social media,' an insider told the New York Post. 

The button under Lauer's desk allowed him to lock his office door. The source adds the NBC News family is 'so sickened by his behavior it is almost like they want to pretend he never existed.

Meanwhile it has emerged that Willie Geist could be Lauer's replacement. Geist currently hosts the 'Sunday Today' program.

Geist, 42, spent five years as a co-anchor on the Today Show's third hour and filled in for Lauer on occasion before sliding into the 'Sunday Today' seat.

Meanwhile, the exiled anchor has been sending personal apologies to his former colleagues in emails saying 'I am truly sorry.'

The Today Show staffers are so outraged by Lauer's alleged behavior- they simply can not find the words to respond, the insider adds. 

As DailyMail.com reported, NBC will not be paying him through the remainder of his contract. His salary was ceased the day he was fired.  

NBC News' HR staff are working their way through a trove of his work emails to find more evidence to bolster the claims levied against Lauer.  

Lauer was reportedly seeking a $30million payday. That news drew a strong response from executives at NBC on Friday.
