Ann Curry has broken her silence for the first time since she was ousted from NBC in 2015. All the rumors, though never confirmed, placed the decision to karate chop Curry’s skyrocketing NBC career, in the hands of her co-host, Matt Lauer.
Lauer, now disgraced and recently fired amid sexual harassment allegations, reportedly did not like Curry and called for her removal as part of his contract negotiations. Whatever the reason, Lauer was behind it, and America was shocked.
Fox News reports:
Ann Curry said in her first TV interview since leaving NBC in 2015 that she would have been surprised if anyone at the “Today” show didn’t know about her former co-host Matt Lauer’s pervy behavior with women, adding that there was a culture of sexual harassment at the peacock network.
“I can tell you that I am not surprised by the allegations,” Curry told the “CBS This Morning” hosts on Wednesday morning regarding the harassment and assault claims against Lauer.
Curry was then pressured to talk about whether others at NBC and “Today” knew about Lauer’s alleged behavior at the time.
“I think it would be surprising if someone said they didn’t see that,” an uncomfortable Curry said. She added, “I would be surprised if many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment that existed.”
