BREAKING: Matt Lauer Fired from NBC After Complaint
The New York Times broke the story early this morning, followed by the announcement on The Today Show.
A statement from NBC read, "On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer," which “represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”
“While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”
