Ann Curry 'Not Surprised' By Matt Lauer Allegations, Says There Was a Climate of Harassment at NBC (Video)

Ann Curry, who used to be Matt Lauer‘s co-host on the Today show, is speaking out about an alleged culture of sexual harassment at NBC and the allegations brought up against Lauer.

While at CBS This Morning, Ann said of Matt, “I’m trying to do no harm in these conversations. I can tell you that I — I am not surprised by the allegations.”

“I can say that I would be surprised if — if — many women did not understand that there was a climate of verbal harassment that existed. I think it’d be surprising if someone said that they didn’t see that. So it was a verbal… sexual…,” Ann said.

Ann was then asked to clarify if there was a culture of sexual harassment while she was at NBC.

“I don’t wanna cause more pain. But no, I’m — you are asking me a very direct question. I’m an honest person. I wanna tell you that it was. Yes. Period,” Ann said.

Ann Curry Asked About Former Co-Anchor Matt Lauer's Sexual Misconduct Firing

Ann Curry was asked about the allegation of sexual misconduct made against Matt Lauer, which ultimately lead to his termination at NBC.

Ann and Matt were Today show co-hosts until she was taken off of the show back in 2012.

“I’m still really processing it,” Anne told People, before adding, “The women’s movement got us into the workplace, but it didn’t make us safe once we got there. And the battle lines are now clear. We need to move this revolution forward and make our workplaces safe. Corporate America is quite clearly failing to do so, and unless it does something to change that, we need to keep doing more ourselves.”

Ann Curry Confirms 'Today' Show Exit

Today co-host Ann Curry has confirmed her exit from the morning show after a week of speculation.

The 55-year-old journalist has served as a co-host on the show opposite Matt Lauer for the past year and will be entering into a new multi-year contract with NBC to cover the world’s biggest stories via network specials.

“It’s going to be a bit of a tough day,” Ann told USA Today of the announcement she is expected to make on-air on Thursday (June 28). “I’m going to have to tell our viewers. That’s what makes me more emotional than anything. I don’t want to leave them. I love them. And I will really miss them.”

“You know, Matt and I have had great on-air chemistry for 14 years, been part of the No. 1 winning team for a history-making number of years,” she added. “That said, I just finished my freshman year as co-host. In every single co-host’s first year, there have been kinks to be worked out, and perhaps I deserve as much blame for that as anyone.”
