  • Former NBC correspondent accuses Tom Brokaw of sexual misconduct

Vester, who was a war correspondent for NBC News during the 90's, came forward with her story in a video interview with Variety.

Brokaw wrote that his accuser, Linda Vester, failed in her pursuit of stardom and was given the run of the Post and Variety to vent her grievances. "Hard to believe it wasn't much more Look at Me than Me:Too".

"Once again, our highest priority is to ensure we have a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected", Lack said.

She told the Post that "the implication of his invitation" was clear. She said that once in a hallway in the mid-1990s, Brokaw approached her in a small enclave, commented that her hands were cold, then put her hands under his jacket against him and pulled her in close.

Vester says Brokaw groped her and tried to forcefully kiss her on at least two occasions in 1993 and 1994. "The conferences had been transient, cordial and applicable, and regardless of Linda's allegations, I made no romantic overtures in the direction of her, at the moment or another".

What was in the email? NBC News and the Today show are both under different management since Curry's time on the programs.

"It is 4:00 am on the first day of my new life as an accused predator in the universe of American journalism", he wrote in the opening paragraph.

He added that as a result of the Post and Variety reports, he was "ambushed and then perp walked" across the outlets' pages, as what he called an "avatar of male misogyny". "I don't want to do that with you.'" The Post corroborated Vester's statements with her diary from the time, as well as with a fellow former NBC coworker of Vester's who she confided in that night.

The cost of two-hour shipping and delivery from Whole Foods stores also informed Amazon's decision to increase price, he noted. Current Prime subscribers can renew for $99 up until June 16, and new members will have to pay $119 following May 11.


NBC News said late past year that it was launching a probe into Mr. Lauer's behavior during his long tenure at the network. Vester remained at Fox News until 2006. Brokaw challenged other elements of her account and wrote that Vester "was coy, not frightened, full with office gossip including a recent rumor of an affair".

In a statement released through NBC News, Brokaw, who retired as anchor and managing editor of "Nightly News" in 2004 and is now a special correspondent, said: "I met with Linda Vester on two occasions, both at her request, 23 years ago because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC".

Brokaw's email noted that his recollection of any encounters with Vester were entirely different from the pictures she painted in the Post and in Variety.

As for the hotel room visit, Brokaw said "I should not have gone but I emphatically did not verbally and physically attack her and suggest an affair in language right out of pulp fiction".

"I am proud of who I am as a husband, father, grandfather, journalist and citizen".

The Post reported that it had talked to 12 current or former NBC staffers who said they were sexually harassed at the network but did not report it to anyone.
