Disgraced 'Today' Show Host Matt Lauer Will Not Recieve Salary Payout

Disgraced 'Today' Show Host Matt Lauer Will Not Recieve Salary Payout

In both Rose and Lauer's cases, their female co-hosts were left to break the news to their viewers - Norah O'Donnell and Gayle King on "CBS This Morning", and Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb on NBC's "Today" show. Hours after news about Lauer broke, former "Prairie Home Companion" host Garrison Keillor was sacked from Minnesota Public Radio over an accusation of inappropriate behavior. Lauer "will not be paid past his last day of work", the source said on Friday, December 1. Published reports accuse Lauer of crude and habitual misconduct with other women around the office. Lauer said Thursday that repairing the damage that he has caused is now his full-time job.

The move by NBC represents one of the few examples of a company taking pre-emptive action over sexual harassment complaints before any allegations had become public.

"This week we saw that when an employee comes forward to report misconduct, the system works".

The Today Show staffers are so outraged by Lauer's alleged behavior- they simply cannot find the words to respond, the insider adds.

In an interview with **People** magazine - previously scheduled to promote her new show - Curry said of Lauer's sudden departure, "I'm still really processing it", and declined to comment further. Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.

Matt Lauer Today

NBCUniversal is launching an internal review of how the company handled the sexual misconduct complaints against fired "Today" anchor Matt Lauer. According to Variety, several women said they complained to NBC executives about Lauer's behavior, but their concerns "fell on deaf ears" because the show is so important to the network financially.

The news division said that before Monday there were no complaints made against Lauer while the current management team has been in place, but questions are lingering over how aware they were of any issues female employees had with the anchor's treatment of them over the years. NBC News publicists didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

News sacked the morning show veteran on Wednesday, citing "inappropriate sexual behaviour in the workplace" and setting up potential chaos at its venerable and lucrative "Today" franchise.

Earlier this month, NBC News fired the man who headed its talent booking department after multiple women accused him of inappropriate conduct. Since that time, more allegations about the star anchor's behavior have come to light.
