Matt Lauer won't be getting salary payout

Matt Lauer won't be getting salary payout

In addition to their investigation into his years of sexual misconduct, it seems NBC News has undertaken the huge effort of removing all traces of Matt Lauer from 30 Rockefeller Center.

Mr. Lack said in the memo, a "team of the most experienced NBCUniversal Legal and Human Resources leaders have begun a thorough and timely review of what happened" regarding Lauer who is being accused of sexual misconduct. The insider added that numerous Today staffers are so shocked and outraged by Lauer's behaviour they have been unable to find the words to write back. The statement also said Lauer would not receive any sort of monetary settlement after his dismissal.

Three women are known to have filed formal complaints with NBC this week about Lauer's alleged wrongdoing. 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.

NBC officials later confirmed that two more accusers came forward on Wednesday.

New Zealand officials said Friday they were examining disgraced United States news anchor Matt Lauer's property dealings in the South Pacific nation following the sexual harassment allegations that prompted his sacking.

Lauer's mid-morning outing came shortly after Today read the ex-anchor's full apology on the air at the start of the program on Thursday.

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.

On CBS, correspondent Vladimir Duthiers has been the main fill-in for the past week, and a New York Post report published on Monday said the 47-year-old is the front-runner for the spot.

Oklahoma: The Sooners wait to find out who they will play and in which national semifinal game, the Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl. TCU coach Gary Patterson compared this year's version of the Sooners to the high-octane offensive team OU produced in 2008.

As we write this Lack still has his job.

Clinton reportedly went on to claim that several "men who shaped the narrative" during the campaign have since been sidelined by sexual harassment claims. That news drew a strong response from executives at NBC on Friday.

And third- we need to keep communicating. O'Reilly denied inappropriate conduct. A source claims that the two women are only pretending to be friends, but there is really a "knife fight" going on because they are both ambitious and know this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. "It is always the right thing to do, and any concerns raised should be done without fear of retaliation, and with full assurance that they will be investigated". Thank you again for your honest feedback.

Lack promised employees he would "continue to share information and the days and weeks ahead".
