Shocking news in TV today. Veteran journalist and Today Show host Matt Lauer was fired overnight after allegations of sexual misconduct came to light. His former colleagues Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb made the announcement at the beginning of today’s broadcast.

While this is the first complaint lodged against the anchor, who has been with the show for twenty years, it is said that this may not have been  an isolated incident.  

NBC Chief Chairman Andrew Lack released the following statement regarding the firing: "Our highest priority is to create a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected, and to ensure that any actions that run counter to our core values are met with consequences, no matter who the offender.” He added that the complaint came from a colleague and was taken under  serious review. The network decided to fire him once they discovered his actions represented a "clear violation of our company's standards."
