Later in 1979, Lauer began his television career as a producer of the noon newscast for WOWK-TV in Huntington, West Virginia. He then started to move around the country, hosting a number of weekly information and talk programs in Boston, Philadelphia, Providence, and Richmond.

Lauer co-hosted the opening ceremonies of several Olympic Games, carrying on what his former co-host Katie Couric had done since the 2000 Summer Olympics.

He co-hosted the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Summer Olympics, the 2010 Winter Olympics, the 2012 Summer Olympics, the 2014 Winter Olympics and the 2016 Summer Olympics.

His commentary on the 2012 opening ceremonies, along with that of co-hosts Meredith Vieira and Bob Costas, came under fierce criticism, being described as "ignorant" and "banal".

In 1986, he then moved on to co-hosting Made In New York on the station (now WNYW after Fox's 1985 purchase of the station) with Jill Rappaport for a fifteen-week run.

In 1986, he also co-hosted Fame, Fortune and Romance. He then headed to Boston in 1988 to host WNEV-TV's Talk of the Town.

He broadcast from locations including Bhutan, Easter Island, the Panama Canal, Iran, Hong Kong, Croatia, and the Great Wall of China.

On some occasions, Lauer has conducted interviews that escalated into tense exchanges.

He had also filled in for Tom Brokaw on NBC Nightly News.
