Matt Lauer Fired By NBC For Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Longtime ‘Today’ host Matt Lauer Fired By NBC For Sexual Misconduct Allegations.

“We are devastated,” ‘Today’ co-host Savannah Gutherie said in a visually emotional statement. “All we can say is we are heartbroken.”

NBC News chairman Andy Lack mad the decision after having received a complaint regarding Lauer’s behavior on Monday night. While the network says it had never received a complaint about Lauer before, it has “reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.

“We received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Layer,” she said. “It represented, after a 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 has been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”
