NBC News spokesperson John Durso stated Lauren told NBC that she wished to move on and pursue new endeavors through an email.

Who is replacing Lauren Scala?
There has been no announcements for who will be replacing Lauren as the traffic anchor for NBC New York.
Her last day at “Today in New York” was Friday, December 3, 2021.
Amy Morris, VP of NBC News, said recently: “To say Lauren is dedicated and a hard worker is an understatement.
"Some days she never stopped — like the time there was a crash near the Lincoln Tunnel after her shift was over, and she sent video and did play-by-play from her apartment window.
"From accidents to weather to frankly any news that impacted commuting, Lauren was our go-to pro.
"During COVID she was the constant in the studio, one of the few who did not work from home."
NBC newscast stated that they would miss her Tri-State expertise and that they will miss her too.
She was said to have given her best to the network and even grabbed the best employee title.
Scala has an estimated net worth of $1.5 million.
