Katie Couric Slams Today for Matt Lauer's 'Completely Unacceptable' Workplace Harassment


In fact, a joke I once made on late night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship. She left NBC in 2006 to anchor the "CBS Evening News" and has been criticized for not speaking out in the more than a month since Lauer was sacked.

NBC issued a statement at the end of November announcing Lauer's termination from the network, referring to a "detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behavior".

Couric also praised Today's Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, who has taken Lauer's place on the show, for how they have dealt with the situation.

Until her People interview, Couric had only commented once on the Lauer scandal, last month on Instagram in response to a user asking her why she had not spoken up.

Couric, 61, who co-hosted the show with Lauer for 15 years until she left in 2006, said the "whole thing" has been "very painful" for her during an interview with People Saturday. In it, Couric says Lauer "pinches me on the ass a lot", a clip that went viral after Lauer's issues surfaced. "But it was nice for me to be able to say that that was a joke". It's still very upsetting.

Couric called the allegations made against her former co-host "disturbing, distressing and disorienting" and said such behavior is "completely unacceptable". "It's incredibly upsetting and I will say something when I'm ready to", she wrote, adding, "Thanks for your interest".

In a statement read on Today after his firing, Lauer said that while some of the allegations were "untrue or mischaracterized", "there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed".

"I mean, we communicate, and listen, it's been a very trying situation in all corners of the world, and all kinds of industries, and you know, people have to move forward", she said. As I am writing this, I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC.
