News conducted an investigation of a Lauer colleague's detailed complaint of "inappropriate sexual behavior". The announcement, rocked the media and entertainment industry, as Lauer's fall from grace was another ripple effect from the "Weinstein Epidemic".

After the news broke, several anonymous women, who were former of current NBC employees, revealed Lauer, 60, allegedly harassed or assaulted them sexually.

Katie Couric is finally opening up about Matt Lauer's firing from "Today".

Couric, who appeared on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" in 2012 with Lauer, said she joked on the show that Lauer "pinches me on the a** a lot".

In her People interview, however, Couric dismissed the suggestion it was proof that she knew of Lauer's reputation.

The TV veteran told People that she had "no idea" about the misconduct Lauer is accused of and that the scandal has been "very painful" for her. "The accounts I've read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it's completely unacceptable that any woman at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment". Couric also stated that from the allegations she heard, it "wasn't the Matt" she or anyone knew. "Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect".

'In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship, ' she said.

Still, the entire situation is "very upsetting" to Couric, and although she's still unsure how to fully process Lauer's actions, she's optimistic about the future of Today.

After Lauer's termination, NBC announced that Kotb would permanently take his place.

Lauer, 60, who co-anchored the NBC talk show for more than 20 years, was ousted from the company November 29 following sexual harassment accusations against him. His wife, Annette Roque, left him after and could be divorcing him. "To the people I have hurt, I'm truly sorry".

Other women also said Lauer behaved inappropriately, with one telling the New York Times that he summoned her to his office in 2001, locked the door, and told her to unbutton her shirt.
