Katie Couric Has Called Matt Lauer's Behavior "Completely Unacceptable"

"The whole thing has been very painful for me", she said. The accounts I have read and heard have been very disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it is completely unacceptable that women at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment'.

"I had no idea what was going during my tenure or when I left", she insists. "In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship", Couric said, referencing a comment she made on a TV show in 2012 when she said Lauer pinched her "on the ass a lot". "It's still very upsetting", Couric said.

Couric co-hosted the Today show with Lauer for 15 years until she left in 2006 to host CBS Evening News.

Katie Couric recently explained why she did not immediately come forward about Matt Lauer's insensitive deed from several years ago.

Following Lauer's firing, multiple women anonymously accused Lauer of sexual harassment and sexual abuse in stories published by The New York Times and Variety.

In an exclusive interview with People, Couric, 61, is opening up about the scandal, revealing that it's affected her in a big way.

Lauer apologized in a statement a day later.

He later added, "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions". "To the people I have hurt, I'm truly sorry". Because I am writing this, I still know the thickness of the disappointment and damage I have gone behind at home and in NBC.

Couric is working on a six-part documentary series for the National Geographic channel called "Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric" and said one episode will focus on harassment women have faced in the workplace.
