In the report, four women who filed complaints against Lauer late last year “confirmed that they did not tell their direct manager or anyone else in a position of authority about their sexual encounters with Lauer.” Still, investigators concluded that there is not a “widespread or systemic pattern” of inappropriate behavior at NBC News.
The report included a number of changes to help improve NBC’s work culture and to make people more comfortable reporting bad behavior.
For his part, Lauer was found to have “frequently engaged in sexual banter or joking in open working environments.”
Lauer was fired by NBC News last November after a colleague complained to executives about the host’s inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.
- NBC investigators could be staying busy. They may be investigating Tom Brokaw next.
