Brokaw Pushes Back On Allegations: They Were Like A 'Drive By Shooting'

2 former NBC employees say anchor Tom Brokaw made unwanted advances

Matt Lauer denies 'coercive, aggressive or abusive actions'

"My client has watched as a number of fearless women have come forward to report extreme forms of sexual harassment at NBC", Mr. Wilkenfeld said in an email. Former Today co-host Ann Curry said in 2012, the year she was let go, she warned management about an employee who told her that Lauer sexually harassed her; NBC said it has no such record.

Savannah Guthrie anchored tonight's newscast, filling in for Lester Holt, with Kate Snow reporting on their longtime colleague. He claimed Vester had a grudge against NBC News because she "failed in her pursuit of stardom" and called out the Post and Variety for being given "the run" by Vester.

Brokaw was writing in response to stories in The Post and Variety in which a former NBC correspondent, Linda Vester, alleged that Brokaw sexually harassed her in the 1990s on two separate occasions, once in NY and once in London.

Brokaw addressed the NY hotel incident, saying that Vester "often sought me out for informal meetings, including the one she describes in her NY hotel room".

Tens of current and former colleagues NBC News special correspondent Tom Brokaw have come out in support of the former anchor amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Brokaw said he never sought an affair, and that Vester had approached him for advice.

In response, Vester's lawyer, Ari Wilkenfeld, said she stands by her allegations, "which speak for themselves".

In a memo to staff on Friday, NBC News President Andrew Lack repeated that Brokaw "emphatically denies" the allegations.

But Brokaw, 78 and married since 1962, rejected Vester's accounts of what happened between them.

She said Brokaw went to her NY hotel room once in the mid-1990s, proposed an affair and tried to forcibly kiss her.

The women say he has treated all of them with fairness and respect, giving them opportunities for advancement and championing successes in their careers.

The Post reported Thursday that NBC planned a "culture assessment", but "did not hire an outside firm to conduct the investigation".

The Post story was part of a broader examination of sexual harassment issues within NBC News. 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. She also mentioned she was Catholic as a way of rebuffing his advances. "As I remember her try out on TODAY did not go well". "I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost", Lauer said.

Some of her relatives by marriage are very close friends.

Vester was a correspondent and anchor at NBC until 1999, when she moved to Fox News.
