“Today” show co-host Matt Lauer was fired after an accusation of sexual misconduct, making him the latest to join a growing list of well-known film and TV personalities caught up in allegations of harassment in the news and entertainment industry.

NBC said it was informed about inappropriate sexual behavior by Lauer, 59, after a colleague complained, according to a memo from NBC News Chairman Andy Lack that was read on air during the “Today” show on Wednesday.
