NBC fires Matt Lauer after complaint about ‘inappropriate sexual behavior’
NBC has fired news anchor Matt Lauer over sexual harassment allegations, the network’s president for news said in a memo to staff today.
“On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer,” the NBC News president said.
He said the allegation against Mr. Lauer “represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”
Mr. Lauer’s co-host, Savannah Guthrie, announced this insane revelation this morning on “Today”. Appearing on the verge of tears, Ms. Guthrie said, “All we can say is we are heartbroken; I’m heartbroken.”
Calling Mr. Lauer’s resignation part of a national reckoning, she continued, “How do you reconcile your love for someone with the revelation that they have behaved badly?”
