NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw has been accused of making inappropriate advances towards two women, The Washington Post reports.
Brokaw, who has been with NBC since anchoring the Today show in 1976, is the latest journalist alleged of sexual harassment following Matt Lauer's shocking termination late last year.
In a Washington Post report published on Thursday, former NBC correspondent Linda Vester claimed Brokaw made an unwanted advances on two occasions in the 1990s. At the time, Vester was in her 20s and did not file a complaint.
'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,' a statement released by Brokaw said.
'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.'
Also on Thursday, Variety published an interview with Vester in which she claimed Brokaw groped her in an NBC conference room and showed up at her hotel room uninvited. Vester also shared her journal entries from the time period to the publication.
A second woman, who also worked at NBC, anonymously told The Post that the news anchor acted inappropriately toward her in the ’90s. Brokaw also denied these allegations.
