They're dropping like flies.
On Wednesday morning, Savannah Guthrie opened the Today show a little differently than usual by announcing that her veteran co-anchor, Matt Lauer, has been fired after two decades on the job. Lauer has been accused of sexual harassment by a colleague.
"This is a sad morning at 'Today' and NBC News," said Guthrie. "As I'm sure you can understand, we are devastated. I'm heartbroken for Matt. He is my dear, dear colleague."
Guthrie also added that she is "heartbroken" for the woman who accused Lauer of misconduct, adding that it is "it's long overdue" that women feel comfortable naming their abusers.
