Billy Bush is out at the “Today” show, an NBC source tells the Daily News.
The morning show co-host is currently negotiating his exit and it’s only a matter of time before it becomes official, the source adds.
NBC News reps declined to comment.
Billy Bush is negotiating an exit from the “Today” show.
Bush, 44, came under fire when a 2005 recording surfaced last week in which he and Donald Trump are heard making lewd comments about women.
Bush, who was a co-host of “Access Hollywood” at the time, can be heard saying, “Oh, that’s good legs,” just before he and Trump meet actress Arianne Zucker.
A disheveled looking Billy Bush is seen out in Encino, CA. The Today Show host has been caught up in the Trump sexist row due to a ‘leaked’ 2005 audio recording of the now presidential candidate demeaning women. Bush has since been suspended from the show and his position of host.

He also encourages Zucker to hug Trump just after the Republican presidential candidate told him: “I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her. I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them.”
Trump also said that when you’re a star, you can do whatever you want to women, even “Grab ’em by the p—y.”
