Well looks like it has happened again.  The ‘Today Show’ star anchor, Matt Lauer has been fired after an anonymous employee complained of “inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.”

Fired Today host Matt Lauer has apologized for the pain and anguish he has caused his loved ones and NBC after a series of bombshell sexual assault allegations led to him being fired from the show.

Lauer released a statement through his former employers in which he asked for forgiveness and admitted there was ‘enough truth’ in the claims made against him.

‘There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry’, he said.

‘The last two days have forced me to take a very hard look at my troubling flaws. It has been humbling.

‘Some of what is being said about me is untrue or mischaracterized. 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.’

Hoda Kotb was in again for Lauer, with her and Savannah Guthrie appearing in considerably good spirits given their marathon Wednesday, which kicked off with the new of Lauer’s sexual misconduct and did not end until well into the night with the two women hosting the lighting of the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.

Lauer had been scheduled to host that event.

During the opening segment, Today highlighted the comments made by Natalie Morales on Tuesday, who urged the network to do the right thing before stating: ‘When and if she wants to tell her story publicly, I’m sure she will, but it did take a lot of courage for her to come forward. It was no doubt a very painful decision.’
