The related sexual harassment billing required another major TV change on Wednesday, when NBC released its chief chief, Matt Lauer, for sexual harassment.
“On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from our colleagues about inappropriate sexual behavior at Matt Lauer’s workplace,” said Andrew Lack, NBC news director.
He said that Lauer’s allegations, “after serious scrutiny, clearly violated our company’s standards, so we decided to terminate his duties.”
“While this is the first complaint about his behavior over the last 20 years he’s on NBC News, we also have a reason to believe that this is not a case,” Lack said.
Ari Wilkenfeld, Judge Wilkenfeld, Herren & Atkinson for civil rights in Washington, said he represented a woman who filed a complaint with NBC but declined to admit it openly. In a New York Times statement, he said:
“My client and I met NBC employees and legal departments on Monday at 6 am for several hours of interviews with the notion that NBC worked quickly because all businesses must face a credible allegation of sexual abuse on the spot of work.
Although I have encouraged NBC’s response so far, I am impressed by the courage shown by my first client to file a complaint and do so without any claim as a company that does what is right. ”
The Times met a woman on Monday night, but she said she was ready to openly denounce.
Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, the host visited the Wednesday morning news “Today.” Mgr. Guthrie, who appeared in tears, said: “What we can say is that we are very sad, my heart is broken.”
He described Mr. Lauer as “his best friend” and said that “it depends on the heart of his brave friend”.
When she phoned Lauer’s national rejection, she said, “How do you agree with your love to say they did it wrong?”
The Lauer sack is just the latest series of explosions including the best stars in television news – Bill O’Reilly, Fox News last April and CBS sales Charlie Rose earlier this month.
But it also includes the most important part of the NBC News brand, “Today”, a profitable producer and a highly respected morning show. Mr. Lauer is an anchor founded in 1997, an exhibition center.
The “Today” team learned the news before it was alive. The visibility of the weather report, roared by Al Smoker, said: “I’m still trying to deal with the news.” Shortly after announcing his resignation, Guthrie grabbed the hand of Hoda Kotb, running to an emergency stop.
The NBC business is one of several examples of companies taking precautionary measures, such as sexual harassment before publishing the allegations.
