As the co-host of NBCs Today Cheap Air Jordan 12 Retro For Sale , Matt Lauer once gave a colleague a sex toy as a present. It included an explicit note about how he wanted to use it on her, which left her mortified.

On another day, he summoned a different female employee to his office, and then dropped his pants, showing her his penis. After the employee declined to do anything, visibly shaken Cheap Air Jordan 11 Retro For Sale , he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.

He would sometimes quiz female producers about who theyd slept with, offering to trade names. And he loved to engage in a crass quiz game with men and women in the office: -, marry, or kill, in which he would identify the female co-hosts that hed most like to sleep with.

These accounts of Lauers behavior at NBC are the result of a two-month investigation by Variety, with dozens of interviews with current and former staffers. Variety has talked to three women who identified themselves as victims of sexual harassment by Lauer Cheap Air Jordan 10 Retro For Sale , and their stories have been corroborated by friends or colleagues that they told at the time. They have asked for now to remain unnamed, fearing professional repercussions.

On Wednesday, NBC announced that Lauer was fired from Today. It was a stunning move for a co-host who was widely considered the crown jewel of the networks news division, with a $25 million annual salary. The cause of his dismissal, according to sources, was a detailed complaint from another current NBC employee about inappropriate sexual conduct from Lauer that started on a trip at the Sochi Olympics in 2014 and continued for several months.

The employee met with human resources at NBC on Monday night. In a statement Cheap Womens Air Jordan 1 Retro For Sale , NBC News Chairman Andy Lack called this the first complaint about his behavior in over 20 years and acknowledged that it may not be the last: We were also presented with reason to believe that this may not have been an isolated incident, Lack said.


Several women told Variety they complained to executives at the network about Lauers behavior, which fell on deaf ears given the lucrative advertising surrounding Today. NBC declined to comment. For most of Lauers tenure at Today, the morning news show was No. 1 in the ratings, and executives were eager to keep him happy.

Its not clear if NBC is paying Lauer through the end of his contract, which expires in 2018. Lauer couldnt be reached for comment.

Insiders say that NBC was forced to act quickly after this weeks complaint Cheap Womens Jordan 1 Retro For Sale , given the severity of the accusations and the national dialogue around sexual harassment that has ended the careers of Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K. and other prominent men. Now, against a series of questions about the future of Today, a troubling portrait has emerged of Lauer. In front of the camera Cheap Mens Air Jordan 1 Retro For Sale , for more than two decades, Lauer had positioned himself as Americas squeaky-clean dad. But behind the scenes, Lauer was a different person.

Despite being married, Lauer was fixated on women, especially their bodies and looks, according to more than 10 accounts from current and former employees. He was known for making lewd comments verbally or over text messages. He once made a suggestive reference to a colleagues performance in bed and compared it to how she was able to complete her job Cheap Mens Jordan 1 Retro For Sale , according to witnesses to the exchange. For Lauer, work and sex were intertwined.

There were a lot of consensual relationships, but thats still a problem because of the power he held, says a former producer who knew first-hand of these encounters. He couldnt sleep around town with celebrities or on the road with random people, because hes Matt Lauer and hes married. So hed have to do it within his stable, where he exerted power Cheap Mens Air Jordan 1 Retro Flyknit For Sale , and he knew people wouldnt ever complain.

Lauer, who was paranoid about being followed by tabloid reporters, grew more emboldened at 30 Rockefeller Center as his profile rose following Katie Courics departure from Today in 2006. His office was in a secluded space, and he had a button under his desk that allowed him to lock his door from the inside without getting up. This afforded him the assurance of privacy. It allowed him to welcome female employees and initiate inappropriate contact while knowing nobody could walk in on him, according to two women who were sexually harassed by Lauer.

According to sources, the sexual harassment extended to when Lauer traveled on assignment for NBC. Several employees recall how he paid intense attention to a young woman on his staff that he found attractive Cheap Mens Jordan 1 Retro Flyknit For Sale , focusing intently on her career ambitions. And he asked the same producer to his hotel room to deliver him a pillow, according to sources with knowledge of the interaction.

This was part of a pattern. According to multiple accounts, independently corroborated by Variety, Lauer would invite women employed by NBC late at night to his hotel room while covering the Olympics in various cities over the years. He later told colleagues how his wife had accompanied him to the London Olympics because she didnt trust him to travel alone.

The spotlight on Lauer intensified earlier this month, when his longtime booker Matt Zimmerman was fired over sexual harassment complaints. The two were very close, and Lauer had promoted Zimmerman to a high executive position and offered him a powerful perch.

Lauers conduct was not a secret among other employees at Today Cheap Air Jordan 1 Off White For Sale , numerous sources say. At least one of the anchors would gossip about stories she had heard, spreading them among the staff. Management sucks there, says a former reporter, who asked not to be identified, speaking about executives who previously worked at the show. They protected the s out of Matt Lauer.

Some producers told Variety they were conflicted about what to do around Lauer. They worried that their careers would be sidelined if they didnt return his advances. " <.
