  • Tom Brokaw is being accused of making inappropriate and unwanted advances... on 2 female co-workers in separate incidents in the 1990s

Ann Curry told the POst that she informed NBC executives in 2012 that they "had a problem" with Lauer and "needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women".

Tom Brokaw wrote of being "ambushed and then perp walked" in both The Post and Variety.

In the email, Brokaw said, "It is 4:00 am on the first day of my new life as an accused predator in the universe of American journalism".

Former NBC News correspondent Linda Vester and an anonymous former production assistant have told the Washington Post that anchor Tom Brokaw made unwanted sexual advances and acted inappropriately with them in the 1990s.

Added Shaquill: "I was going to be happy no matter what team that gave him the opportunity". "But I knew how it was going to go". He joins his twin brother Shaquill , who was drafted in the third round past year by Seattle. "I'm glad they made this happen".

Ms. Vester's attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, said, "My client stands by the allegations, which speak for themselves". "I don't want to do that with you.'" The Post corroborated Vester's statements with her diary from the time, as well as with a fellow former NBC coworker of Vester's who she confided in that night.

Brokaw, who described the stories about him as a "drive-by shooting", said that he had called the late Fox News CEO Roger Ailes on her behalf and that Vester got a job there. Brokaw wrote that Vester sought him out for the meeting in the NY hotel room, a characterization she rejects.

Vester spoke with both the Washington Post and Variety about her allegations. Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.

She said after the alleged 1994 incident, which she said took place at the Essex Hotel in New York City, Mr. Brokaw behaved in a similar fashion in 1995, when he came to her apartment in London, where she was stationed.

The Shiite rebels, known as Houthis, have previously fired missiles targeting the Saudi mainland, including the capital, Riyadh . Yemenis inspect the site where an alleged Saudi-led airstrike hit houses at a neighborhood in Sanaa, Yemen.

But Brokaw, 78 and married since 1962, rejected Vester's accounts of what happened between them.

Vester worked for NBC from 1989 until 1999, when she left to work for Fox News. She also mentioned she was Catholic as a way of rebuffing his advances. Brokaw denies all the allegations.

In an interview with "CBS This Morning" in January, Curry said "verbal sexual harassment" was pervasive at the "Today" show. "I remained silent in an attempt to protect my family from further embarrassment and to restore a small degree of the privacy they have lost. Not in high school, college or thereafter". "She couldn't pick up the phone and say, 'I'd like to talk".

Vester told the Post she does not intend to sue Brokaw or NBC.

Jose Mourinho: 'If he respects me, Arsene Wenger can be my friend'
Mourinho also said there was "no chance" that keeper David de Gea would be allowed to leave the club in the close season. After all, Wenger has had some intense battles with United and Mourinho down the years.

In his memo Friday, Mr. Lack said the review-led by NBC General Counsel Kim Harris, whom he said "has extensive experience in conducting reviews of this kind"-is nearing its conclusion, with findings to be shared as soon as next week".
