Matt Lauer is sticking with NBC's "Today" show for a few more years. The network said Friday the veteran morning host has agreed to a contract extension for multiple years, although it would not specify how long.

Terms were not disclosed. Lauer is one of the highest-paid on-air people in television news. He said he "couldn't be happier" to stay and believes he has the best job in broadcasting. Lauer has been co-anchor of Today since January 6, 1997.

NBC News President Deborah Turness said Lauer is "the best in the business."
