Ronan Farrow's Book Alleges Matt Lauer Exposed Himself to 'Today Show' Producer

Ronan Farrow‘s new book “Catch and Kill” includes another allegation against Matt Lauer.

An excerpt from the book was previously released and detailed NBC News employee Brooke Nevils‘ allegation that Lauer anally raped her while in Sochi for the Olympics.

Now, Farrow writes that Today‘s former entertainment booker Melissa Lonner alleged back in 2010 that Lauer exposed himself to her in his office and also propositioned her.

Lonner reportedly received a six-figure amount for signing a “release of rights” from NBC after she left the company in 2013 and she was unable to talk to Farrow, but former Today co-anchor Ann Curry did speak to the journalist.

“She told me that complaints about Lauer verbally harassing women in the office were well known in her day — and that once, in 2010, a colleague had pulled her into an empty office and broken down, saying Lauer had exposed himself and propositioned her,” Farrow wrote (via Page Six). “It was as close as you could get to a women just melting in front of you in pain.”

Sources close to Lauer claim that he only remembers making a joking lewd gesture to Lonner.

Ann Curry Voices Support for Brooke Nevils Amid Matt Lauer Rape Allegation

Ann Curry is showing support for Brooke Nevils after she came forward in Ronan Farrow‘s upcoming book Catch and Kill with rape allegations against Matt Lauer.

The 62-year-old journalist and former co-worker to the 61-year-old news anchor tweeted her support of the NBC reporter on Wednesday (October 9).

Brooke Nevils is a credible young woman of good character. She came to NBC News an eager and guileless 20-something, brimming with talent. I believe she is telling the truth. And that breaks my heart,” she wrote.

Brooke Nevils, a former NBC News employee, provided in-depth details of her alleged encounter with Matt Lauer at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. She says that she was anally raped by the former Today host in his hotel room.

“Today, nearly two years after I was fired by NBC, old stories are being recycled, titillating details are being added, and a dangerous and defamatory new allegation is being made….I have never assaulted anyone or forced anyone to have sex. Period,” Matt said in response to the allegations.

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.”
