Katie Couric, a former “Today” anchor, admitted that she felt betrayed when Matt Lauer made sexual assault and misconduct allegations against her. This led to Lauer’s firing by NBC.
Couric wrote in her tell-all book, “I know Matt believes I betrayed Him. That makes me sad.” He also betrayed my trust by his behavior behind closed doors during the program we loved so deeply.
Lauer was fired in 2017, after he was accused of engaging in inappropriate sexual conduct with a female colleague at NBC. This occurred following a more than twenty-year tenure at NBC. Many other women shared their personal stories of Lauer’s misconduct after his dismissal.
Lauer denied ever having sex with anyone.
