Kelly, who also opened Megyn Kelly Today on Wednesday by reporting on the news, said she knew people were "sniffing around the issue", but said she had hoped that the allegations against Lauer weren't true.

The New York Times reports that two more women have come forward in the wake of Lauer's firing, which the network announced Wednesday morning after a complaint was filed against Lauer on Monday.

According to the report, Variety spoke to "three women who identified themselves as victims of sexual harassment by Lauer", whose stories have been corroborated by others.

Variety reported Wednesday that previous complaints against Lauer were ignored by the network. In a separate incident, Lauer is accused of exposing himself for another employee and reprimanding her "for not engaging in a sexual act". A company spokesman did provide a comment to NBC News.

Lacazette "pourrait être absent un moment", annonce Wenger
Auteur de l'ouverture du score face à Huddersfield ce mercredi en Premier League, Alexandre Lacazette a été remplacé à la pause. Blessé, l'ancien Lyonnais ratera le choc face à MU et pourrait même rester sur le flanc durant quelques temps.

On Twitter, the programme said: "On Monday night, we received a detailed complaint from a colleague about inappropriate sexual behaviour in the workplace by Matt Lauer".

The report cites multiple current and former employees saying that Lauer was known for making "lewd comments" and being "fixated on women, especially their bodies and looks".

She also said she would not have been surprised if "none of that materialized" and Lauer was able to continue his role on the show for as long as he wanted.

The network last month declined to run Ronan Farrow's investigation into Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual assaults, forcing Farrow to pop the explosive exclusive in The New Yorker. And Bush, who also worked for the "Today" show, was handed his walking papers by NBC.
