While NBC executives have insisted they had no idea that Matt Lauer allegedly made moves on unwillingly female colleagues, the disgraced former “Today Show” host had a reputation as a married man with a wandering eye.
A nine-year-old Village Voice report by journalist Tony Ortega has resurfaced in the wake of Lauer’s firing from NBC for alleged sexual misconduct involving at least one female colleague.
Ortega attended the roast and offers a colorful but NSFW account of the gala event.
One media executive, who attended the roast, told Fox News that “there clearly was a vein of truth running through all those jokes. … You had Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Jeff Zucker all standing up there joking about his sex in the office…they all knew.”
