The Today show's Matt Lauer says he offered his resignation after the Ann Curry debacle was blamed on him.
"If you think the show's better off without me, let me know, and I'll get out of the way," Lauer said to the head of NBC. But Lauer told thedailybeast.com that NBC execs assured him they wanted him to stay with the show.
"I don't think the show and the network handled the transition well. You don't have to be Einstein to know that," said Lauer.
