In a new interview with People, Couric calls the scandal surrounding Lauer "painful" for her, and says that she was unaware of the claims made against him both while she was working at Today and afterwards. In it, Couric says Lauer "pinches me on the ass a lot", a clip that went viral after Lauer's issues surfaced.

"I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at home and at NBC", he said. I feel I speak for many of my coworkers once I say it was not exactly the Matt we knew.

'Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship.

Still, the entire situation is "very upsetting" to Couric, and although she's still unsure how to fully process Lauer's actions, she's optimistic about the future of Today.

The woman who submitted the complaint alleged Lauer began behaving inappropriately while in Russian Federation covering the Winter Olympics in 2014, according to NBC.

A day after his firing, NBC News' Stephanie Gosk said there were as many as eight accusers while appearing on Megyn Kelly Today. Subsequent reports revealed allegations of harassment and assault.

Couric seems to have been completely blindsided by the revelations about Lauer. She left NBC in 2006 to anchor the "CBS Evening News" and has been criticized for not speaking out in the more than a month since Lauer was sacked. "Thanks for your interest". The show's network, NBC, said an investigation of a Lauer colleague's detailed complaint showed "inappropriate sexual behavior".

After his firing, which had been announced live on Now by Savannah Guthrie and also Hoda Kotb, Lauer resolved that the original allegations in a statement.

"To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry".
