Matt Lauer retiring ‘Where in the World’ segment after 10 seasons

After a run of ten seasons, Matt Lauer revealed to Access Hollywood long-running Today show segment, Where in the World is Matt Lauer?, is coming to an end. For now, at least.

“You know, 10 sounds like a better number to end on than nine did, so I think so,” Matt said about letting the segment go. “I think we’ve had a great time. We’ve been to 51 places… around the world.”

Lest you get too disappointed, that doesn’t necessarily mean we’ve seen the last of Where in the World is Matt Lauer. Lauer told Billy Rush on Access Hollywood Live that it’s possible it will eventually be revived, but it may not be exactly the same.

“It gets tougher and tougher to find extraordinary places,” he explained. “So, if we’re not completely done with it, we’re certainly going to rest it for a good long while and maybe revisit it with a twist at some future date.”

The (possibly) final installment of Where in the World is Matt Lauer? saw Matt traveling to Barbados, Spain, Malaysia, Switzerland, and Namibia. When asked about his most memorable moment, he said it would have to be the reveal of his trip to Switzerland.

“That reveal on Thursday from the top of Europe – 11,745 feet up – just the trip up there was ridiculous,” he said. “But to stand at that spot and look out over the glaciers and the Swiss Alps – that, I think, was my favorite moment of the week.”
