Tom Brokaw was accused of sexual harassment by former NBC employees.

Tom Brokaw's defenders at NBC/MSNBC reportedly include, from left, Rachel Maddow, Maria Shriver, Andrea Mitchell and Mika Brzezinski.

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

Following allegations of sexual misconduct against longtime NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw - and Brokaw's denial of any wrongdoing - more than 60 of Brokaw's past and present female colleagues at the Peacock Network have come to his defense.

Ms. Vester's attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, said, "My client stands by the allegations, which speak for themselves".

Brokaw addressed the NY hotel incident, saying that Vester "often sought me out for informal meetings, including the one she describes in her NY hotel room".

Brokaw has denied the allegations and attempted to counter each of her claims in the letter he sent to NBC colleagues.

The report also detailed the claims of an anonymous woman who told the Post that Brokaw acted inappropriately toward her during her time as a production assistant in the 1990s. MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said she would like to add her name to the list once it went public.

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.

She told Variety that despite not being at fault, she "suffered years of humiliation and isolation" from the incidents.

NBC News said late a year ago that it was launching a probe into Mr. Lauer's behavior during his long tenure at the network.

In a memo to staff on Friday, NBC News President Andrew Lack repeated that Brokaw "emphatically denies" the allegations. She also mentioned she was Catholic as a way of rebuffing his advances.

"I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women", Curry said.

Vester was a correspondent and anchor at NBC until 1999, when she moved to Fox News.

He says that he did go to her room but should not have and did not verbally or physically attack her in any way.

As I remember, she was at one end of a sofa, I was at the other. Two friends who Vester told at the time corroborated her story with Variety, and she shared her journal entries from the time period. The company's general counsel Kim Harris has advised that "the review is nearing its conclusion, and we will have findings and further steps to share with you as soon as next week".
