Today Show Paying a Lot of Money for People Not to Work

NBC's Today Show might be as bad as Donald Trump when it comes to handling money.

Trump, who reported lost $1 billion in a single year as some company. 

Word is that NBC paid out Billy Bush's contract when he was fired from the network after his "locker room" chat with Trump. 

Bush walked from the peacock with $9 million bucks in his pocket. 

But, he's hardly the first to leave Today and head straight to the bank. 

The NY Daily News writes that hwen Ann Curry was ousted from "Today" in June 2012, the network was forced to make good on her contract — which paid her an estimated $12 million a year, for over two more years. In that time she appeared on NBC — you know, doing her job — a handful of times. "Meet the Press" host David Gregory pocketed a cool $4 million when he was dumped by the network; And "Today" show general manager Jamie Horowitz, who lasted a mere 10 weeks on the job, reportedly walked out of NBC with an estimated $3 million.

All told, the Today Show has paid roughly $40 million to people, NOT to show up at work. 

How the hell can I get a job like that?
