This morning Americans woke up to some unforeseen news about one of the most popular anchors in the country, Matt Lauer.
The veteran morning news anchor has reportedly been fired from his position at NBC. His former co-host Samantha Guthrie made the shocking announcement during Wednesday's Today Show broadcast. Lauer has been an anchor on the show for about two decades.
"This is a sad morning at 'Today' and NBC News," Guthrie said. "As I'm sure you can understand, we are devastated."
Andrew Lack, NBC News Chairman, sent a memo to the staff explaining that a colleague filed a complaint against Lauer, and “while it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he’s been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident."
So what has he been accused of?
