Tom Brokaw rails against sexual harassment allegations

2 former NBC employees say anchor Tom Brokaw made unwanted advances

The e-mail stated that Brokaw will likely be changed by Linda McMahon.

Vester has said she came forward in part because of NBC's failure to hire outside investigators to look into workplace issues at the company.

Mr. Lack did not say whether the network had started a formal investigation of Mr. Brokaw, noting only that the anchor "emphatically denies" the claims. She couldn't pick up the phone and say, 'I'd like to talk. Charlie Rose wants to host a. "The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda's allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her, at that time or any other".

Tom Brokaw speaks at the 2012 Fiscal Summit on May 15, 2012 in Washington, DC.

CBS News was unable to reach NBC for comment. He also said it was he who helped her land a job at Fox News by placing a call to Roger Ailes, the late chief executive of the network.

Throughout the letter, Brokaw depicted Vester as a disgruntled ex-employee who left NBC "angry that she had failed in her pursuit of stardom".

The letter was composed by Elizabeth Bowyer, co-head of brand and content strategy at Goldman Sachs, who then distributed it to some staffers at NBC, where Bowyer previously worked for Brokaw and NBC News, Variety reported.

On Friday, Brokaw sent a letter to NBC colleagues denying the allegations raised by Linda Vester, calling them "a drive-by shooting" and saying that Vester had a reputation for having "trouble with the truth".

"I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women", Curry said. "I was ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety as an avatar of male misogyny, taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship", he wrote.

Vester was a correspondent and anchor at NBC until 1999, when she moved to Fox News. "She has unleashed a torrent of unsubstantiated criticism and attacks on me more than 20 years after I opened the door for her and a new job at Fox News".

Brokaw noted that he deeply resents "the pain and anger [Vester] inflicted on my wife, daughters, and granddaughters", women he said are of "considerable success and passion about women's rights". "And no one woman's assault can take that away".

But the 60-year-old stipulated that "I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC". Variety ran a video interview with Vester that included some incidents not reported by The Post.

One woman told the Post that Lauer exposed himself in his office and asked her to touch him, a second said he had sex with her in the middle of the day in his office, and third said Lauer gave her a sex toy.
