Katie Couric Slams Today for Matt Lauer's 'Completely Unacceptable' Workplace Harassment

We've heard from a lot of people since Matt Lauer was sacked from NBC over allegations of sexual misconduct, including his former co-anchors, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Ktob, who made an on-air statement on the subject, as well Lauer himself.

Couric claimed she had "no idea" about the problems. "That's why I think so many people on the show were stunned when they heard about this other life he was leading".

'In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship, ' she said. She added: "It's still very upsetting".

On the subject of Hoda Kotb's promotion to co-anchor alongside Savannah Guthrie, Couric enthused "I'm really happy for Hoda - I think she's a great person and her goodness shines through, I think the audience really likes her, and I think she and Savannah make a great team".

Lagerald Vick gets the start beside Graham in the backcourt. "We just had guys that were really out of character", Huggins said. An in-your-space squad that feeds off turnovers forced only three in the second-half when Huggins tried 1-3-1 and 2-3 zones.

"I mean, we communicate, and listen, it's been a very trying situation in all corners of the world, and all kinds of industries, and you know, people have to move forward", she said.

"The accounts I've read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it's completely unacceptable that any woman at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment", Couric stated.

The woman who submitted the complaint alleged Lauer began behaving inappropriately while in Russian Federation covering the Winter Olympics in 2014, according to NBC.

The former Today co-host has released a statement about Matt's dismissal from the show for allegations of sexual misconduct.

Supreme Court agrees to hear Texas redistricting case
Blake Farenthold (R-Texas), who is not seeking reelection, represents the 27th District and Rep. No additional districts will be drawn while the Supreme Court mulls the state's appeal.

Lauer was sacked by NBC in November after the network received a "detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior", saying it had reason to believe it wasn't an isolated incident. Variety and The New York Times subsequently reported on allegations of harassment and assault that had been made around several past incidents. "Thanks for your interest", Couric wrote on Instagram.

She also said the news came as a shock, despite reports which recalled the journalist making a remark about Lauer "pinching her on the a** a lot".

"I wanted to say that earlier, but then I thought it would open up a can of worms, and I really needed time to process all of this, like I think a lot of people do when a situation like this happens", she explained.

"I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC", he said.
