Katie Couric Speaks Out, Claims She Knew Nothing About Matt Lauer Sexual Misconduct

Katie Couric, Matt Lauer sexual misconduct

Katie Couric insists she had no idea former Today show partner Matt Lauer could be involved in the level of sexual misconduct that ended his NBC career.

Nearly two months after Lauer was dumped from the show, Couric is finally speaking out, telling People magazine she was completely shocked and blindsided by allegations Lauer sexually assaulted and harassed coworkers during his NBC tenure.

“I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left,” Couric told People. “I think I speak for many of my former colleagues when I say this was not the Matt we knew. Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship. It’s still very upsetting.”

Couric and Lauer spent several years on the Today show together, with her serving anchor from 1991 to 2006, while he served as co-anchor from1997 to 2017.
