Katie Couric on Matt Lauer Allegations: ‘It’s Incredibly Upsetting’


Katie Couric has been markedly silent since Matt Lauer was fired from Today in the wake of multiple sexual harassment claims. On December 8, however, Couric broke her silence in response to an Instagram question looking for her reaction to the scandal.

“It’s incredibly upsetting and I will say something when I’m ready to,” Couric responded. “Thanks for your interest.”

Couric, 60, cohosted Today alongside Lauer for fifteen years before leaving in 2006 to host the CBS Evening News. She has said publicly that they always had a close working relationship, as well as a friendship.
