NBC Fires Matt Lauer After Harassment Claim
NBC News fired Today Show host Matt Lauer on Wednesday, after a complaint about “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace” was filed by an NBC employee. Lauer had hosted the show for over 20 years. While the announcement comes as a shock to many fans, several NBC News executives were aware that The New York Times had been investigating Lauer’s behavior. The accuser’s attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, was impressed with the response of NBC, who fired Lauer less than 35 hours after allegations were brought forward, saying “This is how the system should work.”
