Tom Brokaw Receives Support From Women In Television Industry

Tom Brokaw

Former "Today" anchor Ann Curry told the newspaper that she complained to NBC management on behalf of a woman who alleged improper behavior by Lauer.

Matt Lauer has spoken out for the first time in five months since he was sacked by NBC over allegations of sexual harassment.

In the email, Brokaw said, "It is 4:00 am on the first day of my new life as an accused predator in the universe of American journalism".

Former "NBC Nightly News" anchor Tom Brokaw wrote an email to colleagues defending himself in the wake of sexual harassment allegations dating back to the 1990s, according to multiple reports.

In response, Vester's lawyer, Ari Wilkenfeld, said she stands by her allegations, "which speak for themselves". "I don't want to do that with you.'" The Post corroborated Vester's statements with her diary from the time, as well as with a fellow former NBC coworker of Vester's who she confided in that night.

"My NBC colleagues are bewildered that Vester, who had limited success at NBC News, a modest career at Fox and a reputation as a colleague who had trouble with the truth, was suddenly the keeper of the flame of journalistic integrity".

Vester, who worked as a war correspondent for NBC News, told the publications that that Brokaw groped her and tried to forcibly kiss her in the 1990s. Vester claims to have PTSD for the experience with Brokaw.

Ms. Vester told the Washington Post and Variety that she was compelled to come forward all these years later because NBC hasn't hired outside counsel to investigate sexual misconduct in the news division-which in her view meant it wasn't taking it seriously enough. Brokaw told the Post "no such incident happened".

"I felt trapped, because it wasn't a request", she described.

Veteran news anchor Tom Brokaw denied an accusation of sexual harassment in a early-morning email to colleagues Friday.

The Post story was part of a broader examination of sexual harassment issues within NBC News.

"I will have more to say later". He also said it was he who helped her land a job at Fox News by placing a call to Roger Ailes, the late chief executive of the network. "I should not have gone but I emphatically did not verbally and physically attack her and suggest an affair in language right out of pulp fiction".

Daily sports headlines from across Gwinnett County, including high school, professional and college news.

"Some of her relatives by marriage are very close friends", Brokaw wrote. He also added that an internal review launched by NBC Universal in the wake of Matt Lauer's firing was nearing its conclusion and that he could share findings with employees "as soon as next week".
