20 Years In Your Face Daily, And It All Comes Down To This!


BostonGlobe |  Longtime “Today” co-host Matt Lauer has been fired by NBC News after a “complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,” the network reported Wednesday morning at the top of its “Today” broadcast. 

A memo from NBC News Chairman Andy Lack noted that it was the first complaint against Lauer, but also said the company had reason to believe it may not have been an isolated incident.
The network said it had received a complaint on Monday night from a colleague and made the decision to terminate his employment. 

“We are deeply saddened by this turn of events. But we will face it together as a news organization — and do it in as transparent a manner as we can,” Lack said in the statement.

Lauer had been an anchor on the show for 20 years, taking over in 1997.
