NBC has fired longtime ‘Today’ host Matt Lauer following allegations of workplace misconduct, the network announced on Wednesday.

“We are devastated,” ‘Today’ co-host Savannah Gutherie said in a visually emotional statement. “All we can say is we are heartbroken.”




Gutherie said that NBC News chairman Andy Lack informed employees of the decision after having received a complaint about Lauer’s behavior on Monday night. She read Lack’s note on-air, noting that while the network says it had never received a complaint about Lauer before, it has “reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.

“We received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace by Matt Layer,” she said. “It represented, after a serious review, a clear violation of our company’s standards. As a result, we’ve decided to terminate his employment. While it is the first complaint about his behavior in the over 20 years he has been at NBC News, we were also presented with reason to believe this may not have been an isolated incident.”
