Almost two years after Matt Lauer was fired from Today in response to sexual assault accusations from an unnamed NBC employee, new allegations have surfaced. In an interview published in Ronan Farrow’s upcoming book Catch and Kill, which was obtained by and reported on at Variety, the NBC employee Brooke Nevils provided her name and additional details on her alleged abuse, claiming that Lauer raped her in his hotel room at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

His former co-workers Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb reported the latest development from their desk at Today, and it was an emotional and difficult experience for them both.

“I feel like we owe it to our viewers to pause for a moment,” Guthrie said. “This is shocking and appalling. I honestly don’t even know what to say about it. I want to say I know it wasn’t easy for our colleague Brooke to come forward then, it’s not easy now and we support her and any women who have come forward with claims. And it’s just very painful for all of us at NBC and who we are at the Today show. It’s very, very, very difficult.” She added that she and everyone at the network are “disturbed to our core.”
