matt lauer ryan seacrest getty Ryan Seacrest's 'Today Show' announcement postponed due to elbow surgery“American Idol” and radio show host Ryan Seacrest was scheduled to appear on “The Today Show” Tuesday (April 3) to make a big announcement, but those of you chomping at the bit to find out what it is will have to wait one more day. Seacrest has had to reschedule.

He tweets Tuesday morning, “I’m feeling a little pain from elbow surgery, doctors says no travel for a day, so c u on @todayshow wed am.”

Speculation has been flying that Seacrest will be announcing a deal with NBCUniversal that includes covering the Summer Olympics for NBC and contributing to “Today” occasionally. A source who wished to remain anonymous tells the New York Times that Seacrest would contribute “a few weeks a year,” but would not be taking over fulltime for anchor Matt Lauer, as has been speculated since Seacrest met with NBC higher-ups in December.

Guess we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out!
