Matt Lauer has put out a statement regarding the allegations of inappropriate sexual misconduct.
He is quoted as saying "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions." " To people I have hurt I am truly sorry". He also stated,“some of what is being said about me is untrue or mis-characterized, but there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed.”
“I regret that my shame is now shared by the people I cherish dearly,” he said. “Repairing the damage will take a lot of time and soul searching, and I’m committed to beginning that effort. It is now my full-time job.”
