In his new book, “Catch and Kill” Ronan Farrow claims, Lauer repeatedly sexually harassed a colleague-on-the-air NBC executive who was allegedly forced to sign a strict NDA as they are in the network, in 2012. It is not clear whether it was the same woman we have been learning about.
Farrow reports that the unnamed former broadcaster NBC claimed Lauer and the other NBC exec approached her and made lewd comments about her during the broadcast. She said: “I’d like to meat on a hook … I would have to walk in with a knot in my stomach. I would come home and cry.”
