Disgraced 'Today' Show Host Matt Lauer Will Not Recieve Salary Payout

Disgraced 'Today' Show Host Matt Lauer Will Not Recieve Salary Payout

Lauer was sacked on Tuesday and his Today show co-worker Savannah Guthrie announced during Today that Lauer was sacked due to "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace", which was written on a memo from NBC CEO Andy Lack.

In a company-wide memo released publicly, Lack said those are among the questions NBC employees are asking in the wake of the "Today" host's firing for what Lack labeled "appalling behavior".

Mr. Lack said in the memo, a "team of the most experienced NBCUniversal Legal and Human Resources leaders have begun a thorough and timely review of what happened" regarding Lauer who is being accused of sexual misconduct. "At the conclusion of the review we will share what we've learned, no matter how painful, and act on it".

12 injured in Pakistan's Peshawar firing
The area where the attack took place is a hub for educational institutions in the city, including the University of Peshawar . In 2014, at least six Taliban militants had attacked an army-run school in Peshawar that left around 141 people dead.

Lauer previously earned $20 million a year with NBC, and somehow believes that despite his predatory behavior, he is still entitled to the remainder of his contract, which was supposed to run through 2018. "There has been an irrevocable breach of Matt's contract, there is a moral clause that says if he brings the company into disrepute - which he clearly has - NBC can terminate his employment immediately without pay and they do not have to pay out his contract".

Lauer, 59, was sacked on Wednesday, roughly 36 hours after NBC News received its first formal harassment complaint from a network employee (at least two more women have subsequently come forward).

In a statement on Thursday, Lauer said he was "truly sorry" for the pain he has caused.
