NBC News fires long-time anchor Matt Lauer who hosted “Today” after a female colleague made a very detailed complaint accusing Matt Lauer of inappropriate sexual behavior during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Lauer has been working for NBC for 20 years and while many are shocked, those who worked closely with him were not. Sources say that Matt Lauer, married to Annette Roque for almost 20 years, has reportedly had consensual affairs for years. Matt has also been known to pinch women’s behinds as Katie Couric reported to experience first hand.
Couric says that she would get pinched by Matt “on her ass a lot” in a 2012 interview.
Since the firing on Wednesday, Matt Lauer has released a statement with an apology, “To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry.”
