By Sammi Turano


Yesterday, America was shocked by the news that Today Show host Matt Lauer was fired for sexual misconduct allegations. According to NBC Chairman Andrew Lack, this was the first allegation brought against the anchor, who had been on the show for twenty years. However, we later learned that other women have come forward with similar accusations.

This morning on the Today Show, it was revealed that Lauer released the following statement in wake of his termination.

“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.

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. The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my own troubling flaws. It's been humbling. I am blessed to be surrounded by the people I love. I thank them for their patience and grace.”
