Another big scandal. NBC has fired its leading morning news anchor on The Today Show, Matt Lauer, over sexual harassment allegations. Lauer’s co-anchor Savannah Guthrie broke the news to the world about what the NBC News president, Andrew Lack, statement read:
“On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer.”
He said the allegations against Lauer, “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.”
