Katie Couric Is Ready to Discuss Matt Lauer's Firing from 'Today'

Couric has gone on to continuing success after her run with Lauer on Today.

"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.

On the subject of a clip which resurfaced in the wake of the allegations, in which Couric says that Lauer "pinches [her] on the ass a lot", she clarified that she was joking. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship. Couric who departed NBC in 2006 in order to host the "CBS Evening News", has been criticized for her silence over a month on Lauer.

Universal fired Lauer, who had worked on the morning show for more than 20 years, in late November, citing "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace".

"It's still very upsetting", she said. "I really admire the way Savannah [Guthrie] and Hoda [Kotb] and the entire Today show staff have handled a very hard situation", she concludes.

Katie Couric is finally opening up about Matt Lauer's firing from "Today".

UEFA Fans' Team Of The Year 2017 Announced
Two Premier League players have been named in the 2017 UEFA Team of the Year - but both Harry Kane and David de Gea missed out. As in previous years, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi grabbed the two forward spots to round out the fantasy team.

Lauer expressed being "embarrassed" over the allegations, but called some of the accusations "untrue" and "mischaracterized".

Insisting that Lauer had always been "respectful" towards her, she said a 2012 comment she made that he "pinched her a** a lot" was "just a joke". "To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry", he wrote. "It is now my full-time job".

They told how he casually conducted extra-marital affairs with young staffers and had a lock in his office at 30 Rock which, it was suggested, allowed him to conduct sexual lisasions at work.

Time's Up was given spotlight at this year's Golden Globe Awards, where most celebrities wore black to protest sexual abuse. "Clearly we are witnessing a sea change and a long overdue course correction".

Oprah Winfrey received the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2018 Golden Globes.

Women also told Variety that Lauer gave one female staff member a sex toy as a gift, adding a note describing how he wanted to use it on her.
