Matt Lauer was spotted on Wednesday in the Hamptons after putting his Manhattan home on sale for $7.35million
Lauer has kept a rather low profile since he was accused of sexual harassment in November, which quickly got him kicked out of the Today show and replaced by Hoda Kotb.
The 60-year-old disgraced anchor was spotted lounging in the Hamptons after putting his $7.35million home on the market.
His estranged wife and children moved to the Hamptons after it was revealed that Lauer had multiple sexual harassment allegations against him.
The Hollywood Reporter honored 35 of the most powerful people in media during their award ceremony that was held at The Pool in the Upper East Side.

Best of friends! Savannah Guthrie, Gayle King and Hoda Kotb were all smiles at the event on Thursday evening
Everyone appeared in high spirits amid months of rumored tension between the staff and Kelly.
NBC staffers including Gifford were reportedly not thrilled with Kelly after she told off Jane Fonda in an unusually aggressive segment on the Today show last year.
It was claimed Kelly’s co-stars, which also include Jenna Bush and Hoda Kobt, were not happy with the attack.
Viewers also felt it was mean spirited to trash the 80-year-old film icon.
Kelly has been ruffling feathers for weeks at Today, it has been claimed by several outlets, though UsWeekly is insisting they are all having a nice time on set.
Despite possible tension, everyone seemed to put their differences aside to celebrate their spots as some of the media’s most elite.
Hoda Kotb notably replaced Matt Lauer as Savannah Guthrie’s co-anchor on the Today show after sexual harassment allegations were revealed in November 2017
