    I don't watch much television, but I never really had a problem with Lauer and I felt he did a pretty fair job on the air.

    I'm sure he will be employed again soon.

    As the co-host of NBC’s “Today,” 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, he reprimanded her for not engaging in a sexual act.


    He would sometimes quiz female producers about who they’d slept with, offering to trade names. And he loved to engage in a crass quiz game with men and women in the office: “f—, marry, or kill,” in which he would identify the female co-hosts that he’d most like to sleep with.
    These accounts of Lauer’s 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, 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.

    You're just a kid... I was watching it when J. Fred Muggs, Jack Lescoulie, and Dave Garroway hosted it. Muggs was a chimpanzee, who'd be involved in humorous stunts and setups as part of the morning bantering, where they touched on light news items.

    For the weather, Garroway just walked over to a chalkboard-rendering of the US and drew a sun, clouds, rain, whatever.

    They were real.

    Pre-packaged was an utterly foreign concept then.

    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
