Speaking of the Today Show, Matt Lauer will soon be packing his bags for Alaska.
Lauer will spread some Yuletide cheer with Sarah Palin and her brood riding snowmobiles, ice-fishing and making moose stew.
An NBC source tells Page Six that the arrangements were made as Matt prepared to interview the former vice presidential candidate live on Monday about her new book, “Good Tidings and Great Joy: Protecting the Heart of Christmas.”
Lauer will visit the Palins in Wasilla in early December for a segment that will air the week of December 16.
He might also do a report on Russia, site of NBC's Olympic coverage, since you can see it from Palin's house.
