Matt Lauer’s Secret Affair with a ‘Well-Respected’ NBC Star

Disgraced “Today” anchor Matt Lauer allegedly had an affair with a famed and well-respected broadcaster – the New York Post was told – representing a “clear imbalance of power.”

The woman signed a nondisclosure agreement when she left NBC.

We have agreed not to name the broadcaster at her request, but a TV source said: “Matt had influence over everyone’s career — one word and your career would be sunk. I know there was a clear imbalance of power in this woman’s relationship with Matt.”

In his new book, “Catch and Kill,” Ronan Farrow also claims Lauer repeatedly harassed a fellow on-air NBC personality, who was allegedly forced to sign a strict NDA when she left the network in 2012. It’s not clear if it’s the same woman we’ve learned about.

Farrow reports that the unnamed former NBC broadcaster claimed Lauer and another NBC exec propositioned her and made lewd comments about her during broadcasts. She said, “I was like meat on a hook … I would walk into work with a knot in my stomach. I would come home and cry.”

She alleged that when she turned the men down, she was “punished” and got fewer assignments, adding: “My career took a sharp nosedive.” Although she didn’t make a formal report to HR, she did tell colleagues. When she left, NBC forced her to sign a nondisclosure agreement that waived her right to sue and banned her from making disparaging comments about the network, the book states.

Lauer has strenuously denied any wrongdoing. His lawyers had no comment. Despite Farrow’s reporting, NBC stated that Brooke Nevils’ allegation of rape against Lauer, made in 2017, was the first time execs had heard of any wrongdoing.

NBC News president Noah Oppenheim said in a staff memo Monday that no records had been found of inappropriate messages from Lauer to the woman Farrow mentioned, and said she signed a standard NDA.

  1. NBC pigs should b fired and fined till it hurts to even think lewd thoughts. Hypocrites all, these soulless, godless creatures that destroy women’s lives for turning them down. Hold the Board of Directors accountable professionally and personally with sizable payments to those affected by Lauer, NBC management and Board. Shameful.

    • NBC should be penalized very harshly to the tune of hundreds of mullions of dollars and a boycott of the network and it’s sponsors products should be initiated!

  2. Unless the article has names it shouldn’t be written. Its all BS without specifics.

  3. Just another jew predator…

  4. Well if not named may not have had a affair period

  5. Matt is a disgusting and evil man. Using his “power” to destroy a woman’s career if she won’t have sex with him. He will be joining Satan and burning for the rest of his life. Why was this allowed???? A woman having to fend off a predator while trying to do her job well ??? So unfair. He is evil incarnate. I feel so sorry for his children. They have to live with this monster of a father for the rest of their lives.

  6. Name the names of the women or stop talking and writing about this BULL NONSENCE.

  7. If these women continue to put their careers above their body/moral, whatever
    this will continue. They have affairs with these powerful men, get dumped when
    a better one comes along, scream rape and write a book. They are just as guilty
    as the men who use them…………….they know they are getting used/abused but
    they do it for fame, career, $$. What is the differnt between them and a common
    whore ? The price.

    • This is not true in every case! Unfortunately these money grubbing women ruin it for those who weren’t in it for career advancement!
