What’s next for Matt Lauer?
– Celebrity Gossip –
Matt Lauer’s time as the king of morning news magazines is over. He was fired from the Today show in late November 2017 after more than 20 years anchoring the a.m. staple, and the details behind his dismissal are harrowing.
Lauer was accused of nearly two decades worth of sexual misconduct, ranging from sending inappropriate messages to colleagues and underlings to coercing employees lower on the totem pole into sexual relationships to allegations of sexual assault.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that Lauer allegedly engaged in all of this behavior while he was married. He didn’t even deny all of the accusations levied against him, saying in a statement: “There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. As I am writing this, I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC. 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. I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly.”
He continued, “Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full time job.”
Personal renovations in mind, what’s next for the disgraced anchor?
