A non-disclosure agreement has made Curry previously reluctant to talk about her experiences at NBC. She left the company in 2015 after being shunted aside later in 2012 on Today, with some blaming Lauer for the move.
She now claims that there was “pervasive verbal sexual harassment at NBC.” She worked at Today for 15 years, co-anchoring Today in 2011 and 2012. However, Curry said she understands reticence to report harassment.
“This is one of the problems when we talk about corporations with an HR department being under leadership of someone who might or might not be accused,” she said. “How are they going to complain about it if they are accusing someone who is overseeing the department that is supposed to protect them. Do you have a system that allows those who feel they have been victimized to air their complaints without fear they will lose their jobs? I don’t know a company that does.”
WaPo also reported several other incidents with NBC executives that have not been previously reported, including two regarding Lauer. One woman claimed he exposed himself in his office and requested that she touch him, while another claimed he had sex with her in the middle of the day in his office.
