Natalie Morales is possibly being cut from NBC's "Today" show team against her will, says a new report.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, NBC insiders have heard rumors that Morales will be moved from "Today" to "Dateline."

"They’ll try to position this as a 'promotion' for Natalie — but make no mistake, she’s not happy," a source told the newspaper.

If Morales is moved, reports say that Hoda Kotb – who has a fan in Matt Lauer – would act as the show host from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

When asked for comment on the rumors, an NBC News spokesperson refocused the discussion on the show's positive ratings.

"This sounds like someone is trying to stir up trouble after the ‘Today’ win in the demo last week," said the spokesperson. "We’ve got great momentum, we love our team and Natalie is an important part of it."

Morales and Willie Geist were the subjects of shake-up rumors in November. Back then, it was widely speculated that Morales and Geist had been fired. Those rumors were apparently not true, and were later attributed to ideas that had been floated by "Today" general manager Jamie Horowitz, who was hired and soon fired after 10 weeks on the job.
