Matt Lauer still harassing the ‘Today’ show, over a month after his firing

Matt Lauer is reportedly having a hard time leaving the Today show behind, after he was fired amid numerous allegations of sexual misconduct.

The New York Post reports that Lauer has been sending unsolicited feedback about the morning talk show to producers, and that current staffers aren’t appreciative of his backseat driving.

Most recently, Lauer reportedly sent an email to a producer, criticizing the choice of music used in a Today show segment.

Lauer was fired on November 29, after a female staffer claimed he had harassed her when Today was covering the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. Multiple women have since come forward, including one who said she had repeated sexual intercourse with Lauer before leaving for another job. The well-paid veteran Today show co-anchor reportedly had a button on his desk that would lock his office door from the inside, and he allegedly used it when he had female staffers in his office.

In December, Lauer’s father-in-law told the Daily Mail that his daughter, Annette Roque, would likely divorce him. Shortly after that, Roque was seen visiting the offices of a high-powered law firm in Manhattan.

Earlier this week, NBC announced that Hoda Kotb would be replacing Lauer as Today show co-anchor — at a fraction of his reported $25 million annual salary.
