“NBC News has fired Senior Vice President, Booking, News & Entertainment Matt Zimmerman after he ‘engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman’ at the network. Zimmerman is widely known to be one of ‘Today’ co-host Matt Lauer’s closest associates and confidants at the network. He worked for years as Lauer’s personal booker, and expanded his remit to oversee all of NBC News’ guest bookings as Lauer’s power grew in the organization. ‘We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result he has been dismissed,’ an NBC News spokesperson told Fox News.” (11/14/17)
