What colleagues think about Matt Lauer after sexual assault allegations

What colleagues think about Matt Lauer after sexual assault allegations

Since being fired, reports in Variety and The New York Times have accused Lauer of shocking behavior, including using a button concealed underneath his desk to lock his door and repeatedly quizzing female producers about their sex lives.

"They knew Matt was flirty and playful and may have had relationships over the years, but what they knew of those relationships was that they were consensual, and they weren't aware they went beyond that", the source told Us.

Melvin has been with MSNBC since 2011 and has manned coverage of the George Zimmerman trial, the Sandy Hook massacre and the 2012 Republican and Democratic National conventions.

The news of Lauer's unwillingness to professionally recover from the fiasco comes a few days after a report in Us Weekly suggested that a "really bad vibe" had swept over "TODAY" in the wake his firing. Since then multiple women have come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

Lauer was sacked last week amid multiple accusations of inappropriate behavior.

Of the scandal, Roque's father, Henri, told the Daily Mail, "I have no words for her husband".




After his dismissal, Lauer issued a statement apologizing.

He said, "Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed". Page Six reports Hoda Kotb is expected to continue as temporary co-host alongside Savannah Guthrie until a replacement is named. "He's been the best person that's ever held that job and I couldn't imagine that anything that he would have done-that would have been so out of character for him-that would have caused that reaction", she said. "I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly". "As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC".

Craig Delano Melvin hails from Columbia, South Carolina, and received his bachelor's degree in government from Wofford College.

He married ESPN sports anchor and former WRC-TV sports reporter Lindsay Czarniak on October 15, 2011.

The 76-year-old added his daughter is "feeling shocked" and "is now having sorrow for her children".
