Tom Brokaw Receives Support From Women In Television Industry

2 former NBC employees say anchor Tom Brokaw made unwanted advances

Tom Brokaw accused of sexual harassment by former NBC correspondent.

Savannah Guthrie anchored tonight's newscast, filling in for Lester Holt, with Kate Snow reporting on their longtime colleague. She said she did not report any of the alleged incidents to NBC News management.

The target? Linda Vester, a former colleague at NBC News who told The Post and Variety that Brokaw had sexually assaulted her in 1994; that he had "tickled" her around the waist at the Denver bureau of NBC News; and that he'd made an advance in London, as well. Hard to believe it wasn't much more Look At Me than Me:Too.I am proud of who I am as a husband, father, grandfather, journalist and citizen.

Variety reported that Vester's friends corroborated her story, as did contemporaneous journal entries.

Ms. Vester's attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, said, "My client stands by the allegations, which speak for themselves".

As it happens, Brokaw addressed the topic of sexual harassment while appearing on a panel on MSNBC in December, the Washington Post said.

Brokaw said that the accuser, Linda Vester, often sought him out on informal meetings, including the one she described in her NY hotel room.

NBC News fired Lauer in November after another staffer complained about his inappropriate conduct starting at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

The women say he has treated all of them with fairness and respect, giving them opportunities for advancement and championing successes in their careers. In it, he said, "I was ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety ... taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship". She also said she was not surprised about the allegations against Lauer.

In an interview with "CBS This Morning" in January, Curry said "verbal sexual harassment" was pervasive at the "Today" show.

Vester was a correspondent and anchor at NBC until 1999, when she moved to Fox News.

"Once again, our highest priority is to ensure we have a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected", Lack said.

Vester told the Post she does not intend to sue Brokaw or NBC. "She couldn't pick up the phone and say, 'I'd like to talk".

He then allegedly put his hand behind her neck, gripped her head, and stated, "Now let me show you how to give a real kiss", before jerking her head toward his. He also added that an internal review launched by NBC Universal in the wake of Matt Lauer's firing was nearing its conclusion and that he could share findings with employees "as soon as next week".
