Katie Couric says Matt Lauer allegations were ‘devastating’ and ‘disgusting’


Katie Couric says studying of the allegations of sexual misconduct confronted by Matt Lauer was “devastating” and “disgusting”.

Couric and Lauer co-hosted the Today present for years till Couric’s departure in 2006.

Lauer was fired from the Today present in 2017 amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour.

In 2019, a former colleague alleged that Lauer had raped her throughout the 2014 Winter Olympics. Lauer denied all allegations in an open letter revealed in 2019.

Couric, whose memoire Going There might be revealed later this month, advised Savannah Guthrie on the Today show on Tuesday (19 October) that she and Lauer have “no relationship” anymore.

“As I got more information and learned what was going on behind the scenes, it was really upsetting and disturbing,” she mentioned. “It was really devastating, but also disgusting.

“I think what I realised is that there was a side of Matt I never really knew, and I tried to understand why he behaved the way he he did, and why he was so reckless and callous, and honestly abusive to other women.”

Going There might be revealed on 26 October by Little, Brown and Company.
