Ann Curry, one of our inspirations behind much of our work in journalism, has spoken out about Matt Lauer’s troubling sexual abuse allegations (and eventual demise at the Today Show). As People notes, Curry, was questioned about whether or not she may have heard of Matt Lauer’s behavior at the Today Show when she co-anchored a few years ago.
Not surprisingly, Curry, appears to have heard of it before — and cited that harassment was pervasive at NBC (and execs did nothing about it). “I don’t wanna cause more pain,” she said. “But no, I’m—you are asking me a very direct question. I’m an honest person. I wanna tell you that it was. Yes. Period.”
Curry’s new show We’ll Meet Again premieres on Thursday.
