“Savannah Guthrie fought back tears on Wednesday’s segment of NBC’s “Today” show while announcing that her co-host Matt Lauer had been fired from NBC News for “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.”
Guthrie was openly emotional as she told viewers she had learned the news mere moments before reporting it live on air. Joined by co-host Hoda Kotb, Guthrie read a statement from NBC News chairman Andy Lack, who ensured that NBC will continue to report on the matter in a transparent manner.
“As I’m sure you can imagine, we are devastated, and we are still processing all of this. And I will tell you right now, we do not know more than what I just shared with you,” Guthrie said. “But we will be covering this story as reporters, as journalists. I’m sure we will be learning more details in the hours and days to come, and we promise we will share that with you.”
