Matt Lauer's Wife Leaves Their Home Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Matt Lauer's Wife Leaves Their Home Amid Sexual Misconduct Allegations

"We can say unequivocally, that, prior to Monday night, current NBC News management was never made aware of any complaints about Matt Lauer's conduct", a spokeswoman said.

A representative for Lauer didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. "At the conclusion of the review we will share what we've learned, no matter how painful, and act on it".

Lack reminded NBC News staffers of the options they have at their disposal, including managers and human-resources executives as well as specially designated employee hotlines and email addresses manned by NBCUniversal and its corporate parent, Comcast.

As I said in my note on Wednesday: our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected, and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences, no matter who the offender.

NBC's announcement Tuesday that Lauer was being fired for "inappropriate sexual behaviour " meant that the network was cutting loose the popular, long-established star of its highly lucrative morning show.

Lauer is likely out of luck in this case due to a morals clause contained in most TV news contracts, which gives a network some leeway in firing a pricey anchor for cause.

Gosk acknowledged that the Variety story included complaints from women who said they approached network executives about what Lauer had done, but that nothing happened.

"Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I'm committed to beginning that effort", Lauer said in the statement, which was read by his former co-host Savannah Guthrie at the start of Thursday's broadcast.

"This week we saw that when an employee comes forward to report misconduct, the system works. The complaint is quickly assessed and meaningful action is taken", he said.

Last fall, the network was accused of sitting on an "Access Hollywood" audio tape in which then-candidate Donald Trump was heard telling Billy Bush that prominence came with a license to grope women. CNN reported that journalists for the New York Times had been investigating Lauer for the past several weeks.

The 59-year-old presenter was sacked from Today earlier this week after there was a "detailed complaint by a colleague" submitted to bosses, followed by a string of other allegations made against him from current and former NBC staff, and it seems the sex scandal is too much for Annette Roque to handle as she has been rumoured to have returned to her home of Amsterdam in the Netherlands with their children.
