Lauer's statement follows two new allegations of sexual harassment against the former Today anchor, which The Washington Post reported Thursday alongside sexual harassment allegations against Tom Brokaw.

Vester, who was a war correspondent for NBC News during the 90's, came forward with her story in a video interview with Variety.

Brokaw, who described the stories about him as a "drive-by shooting", said that he had called the late Fox News CEO Roger Ailes on her behalf and that Vester got a job there.

The women say he has treated all of them with fairness and respect, giving them opportunities for advancement and championing successes in their careers.

She said after the alleged 1994 incident, which she said took place at the Essex Hotel in New York City, Mr. Brokaw behaved in a similar fashion in 1995, when he came to her apartment in London, where she was stationed.

NBC News fired longtime host Matt Lauer for "inappropriate sexual behavior." . She said that once in a hallway in the mid-1990s, Brokaw approached her in a small enclave, commented that her hands were cold, then put her hands under his jacket against him and pulled her in close.

"We are current and former colleagues of Tom's, who have worked with him over a period spanning four decades", they continued.

After Today show host Matt Lauer was sacked past year, Lack said at the time that an internal review was underway to determine "what happened and what we can do to build a culture of greater transparency, openness and respect for each other".

Despite the mounting accusations, Lauer still denies wrongdoing, according to the insider.

Lack said in the letter, which NBC sent to Reuters, that Brokaw "emphatically denies" the allegations.

Another woman-a former production assistant for the news network-accused the former news anchor of touching her inappropriately.

An NBC spokesman told The Washington Post there is no record of Curry's complaint and it was not noted in Lauer's personnel file. "The conferences had been transient, cordial and applicable, and regardless of Linda's allegations, I made no romantic overtures in the direction of her, at the moment or another".

"She couldn't pick up the phone and say, 'I'd like to talk".

Previously, Lauer's firing was announced in a tweet from Today that also had a clip showing Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie breaking the news on the show. He said that more than 1,600 NBC News employees have received mandatory workplace training, and there's still more to be done.
