The Today show’s Matt Lauer was unexpectedly fired this morning by NBC due to inappropriate sexual behavior. Savannah Guthrie made the announcement this morning, after learning of the news herself only minutes before.

While the complaint received was the first against Matt Lauer in over 20 years, Guthrie said, there is reason to believe that it was not an isolated incident. It never is, is it?

“This is a sad morning at ‘Today’ and NBC News,” Guthrie said. “As I’m sure you can understand, we are devastated. I’m heartbroken for Matt. He is my dear, dear colleague.”

This news comes a week after Charlie Rose was fired from the CBS Morning Show.
We’ll have more later, once we know more.
