Matt Lauer Terminated From NBC News

In a statement just issued on the “Today” show Twitter feed, it has been confirmed that TV anchor Matt Lauer has been fired from NBC News over “inappropriate sexual behaviour”.

In a statement just issued on the show by an emotional Savannah Guthrie, the network said: “On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Lauer. It represented, after serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment.”

It is said this was the first complaint about his behavior in the over twenty years he’s been at NBC News, but the network was also presented with reason to believe it may not have been an isolated incident.

There will be further developments on this shortly.
