Matt Lauer Is "Weak And Broken And Ashamed" After Today Show Firing

Adjust Comment Print

Lauer was sacked last week amid multiple accusations of inappropriate behavior. "I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly".

By the end of the day, multiple women had come forward with stories of inappropriate behavior that many stated crossed into the realm of perverted.

"There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions", he continued. "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".

Though Lauer was seen with his wedding ring on just a few days ago when he was taking his son to school, it would make sense that Roque is the one to be without hers as her father, Henri, told DailyMail.com that she doesn't play to stay with him.

A source told Entertainment Tonight that the 38-year-old Melvin, who anchors MSNBC Live weekdays and is also the co-anchor of Today on Saturday, has fans among NBC and the staff, and the company could be tapping him for a much-needed upgrade. Today had more viewers than its ABC rival, Good Morning America, all five days last week - the first time that has happened in almost a year - the AP reports.

"This would give the network the opportunity to make Melvin into a star at NBC", a source told ET. Lauer had renewed his contract a year ago for a $25 million annual salary through 2018. It has been reported that Craig Melvin is being eyed as a replacement for Lauer.

There were also murmurs about Hoda Kotb replacing Lauer, but the source said that would be "highly doubtful", given the success of Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford's hour.

"We are heartbroken", Guthrie said Wednesday.

This is what happens when you behave badly, folks! "But I do know that this reckoning that so many organizations have been going through is important, it's long overdue and it must result in workplaces where all women, all people, feel safe and respected".
