Ann Curry Says She Reported Matt Lauer to NBC Administration in 2012

Tom Brokaw

The 60-year-old presenter - who has children Jack, 16, Romy, 14, and Thijs, 11, with wife Annette Roque - was sacked from "Today" in November following the claims against him and though he's admitted he "acted inappropriately", he insists numerous allegations are "absolutely false".

While sources revealed to People that Curry was ousted over poor ratings, to make matters all the more insulting, there was also a "lack of chemistry" with Lauer that was speculated to be the reason she was sacked. He said he had remained silent "in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment" but must now "speak up".

Curry was removed as a co-host of the Today show in 2012 amid wavering ratings and bad blood with Lauer.

Lauer's former colleague and co-anchor Ann Curry recently told The Washington Post that she approached two NBC's management team members after a female staffer told her that she was "sexually harassed physically" by Lauer.

The ruling on Thursday drew further outrage, with protesters outside the court building chanting: "It's not abuse, it's rape". The detective had followed the woman over several days and produced photographs of her smiling with friends.

NBC told the Post that there was no record of a warning from Curry about Lauer. Do you have a system that allows those who feel they have been victimized to air their complaints without fear they will lose their jobs?

He concluded in his statement: "But defending my family now requires me to speak up. Nonetheless I wish to make it completely clear that any allegations or experiences of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my half, at any time, are completely false". NBC correspondent Linda Vester has alleged she was "groped and assaulted" by Brokaw when she worked with him in the 1990s. Per the report, Curry claims she "told management they had a problem, and they needed to keep an eye on [Lauer] and how he deals with women". "I totally acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC". When executives, including NBC News's president, Noah Oppenheim, and chairman Andrew Lack, asked Lauer if there was any sexual misconduct from the past they should know about, he reportedly denied it. In a statement read on air after he was sacked from Today in November over "inappropriate sexual behavior", Lauer apologized to the "people I have hurt".

An insider beforehand advised PEOPLE that Lauer was let go as a outcome of sexual misconduct all through 2014 with a feminine staffer, together with on the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
