Matt Lauer's Legal Team Responds to 'Today' Show Booker's Allegation

Matt Lauer is responding to more allegations of sexual misconduct.

Melissa Lonner, a former Today show booker, claims in Ronan Farrow‘s new book Catch & Kill that the former NBC host exposed himself to her in 2010.

According to Melissa, Matt got her away from a company cocktail party and into an empty office, where he guided her to the sofa, made small talk and unzipped his pants to expose himself.

Matt never exposed himself to anyone. This ridiculous story has been shopped around for years. Many allegations that are being circulated were never raised during any fact-checking process. And despite repeated requests for an advance copy of this book, we have not been provided one, while many media outlets have. Matt will have more to say at an appropriate time, but he will not take part in the marketing circus for this book,” his attorney, Elizabeth M. Locke, said in response to the allegation.
