Report: Today Show could sack Tiki soon
Tiki Barber could be facing fourth-and-long on NBC’s “Today Show.”
The ex-New York Giants running back has a contract that expires soon and he could be dumped from the program, according to the New York Post, which earlier this week broke news of Barber splitting from his wife Ginny, who is pregnant with twins, and his relationship with a young former intern.
Barber reportedly earns about $2 million a year from the show, but his role has been considerably reduced, as it was on NBC’s football coverage.
“Tiki has a contract with NBC, and I’ve heard nothing to the contrary,” Barber’s agent Mark Lepselter told the Post.
Barber and his wife Ginny have two other children already and will soon have four after she gives birth. The public portrayal of his alleged philandering can’t be good for his post-football TV career right now.
