Matt Lauer Fired From NBC's 'Today' Show After Sexual Misconduct Allegation
Thursday, 30 November 2017 - 8:23
American television presenter Matt Lauer has been sacked from his job fronting one of the country’s biggest morning shows, after NBC fired him following an allegation of sexual misconduct from a colleague.
The 59 year old veteran host of NBC’s ‘Today’ show was shown the door by the network on yesterday morning after one of Lauer’s colleagues came forward with a “detailed complaint” on Monday.
Lauer’s co-hosts, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, announced the news at the start of Wednesday morning’s show – having apparently only been told about his departure a few minutes before they went on air.
