Seacrest has confirmed that he will be joining the NBC family beginning this summer as a correspondent for the Olympics in London. After Matt Lauer asked him about a future on the “Today Show,” he skirted around the question, ultimately not giving a straightforward answer, but saying his start with the NBC family will be in the Olympics as a host.

As for American Idol, Seacrest says, “I plan to stay there. I think I will make an official announcement very, very soon.”
So tired. I want to be on whatever Seacrest is taking.
