NBC News Chief Calls Ex-Anchor Matt Lauer’s Conduct ‘Reprehensible’

  • The Wrap
NBC News and MSNBC chairman Andy Lack sent a memo to staff Wednesday following the publication of details about the rape accusation made by former NBC News employee Brooke Nevils that got Matt Lauer fired in 2017.

In the memo, reviewed by TheWrap, Lack said, “First, and most importantly, in reading today’s news our hearts go out to our former colleague.”

He continued, addressing the details from Ronan Farrow’s forthcoming book, “Catch and Kill”:

“Matt Lauer’s conduct in 2014 was appalling and reprehensible — and of course we said so at the time. The first moment we learned of it was the night of November 27, 2017, and he was fired in 24 hours. Any suggestion that we knew prior to that evening or tried to cover up any aspect of Lauer’s conduct is absolutely false and offensive.”
