Two sources told the Caller that the woman, who was then an assistant producer for Hardball, received a payment of $40,000 after she accused Matthews of making sexual comments to her in the company of other network employees.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews was accused of making inappropriate comments about a staffer, who NBC later paid a separation payment when leaving the network. The show was on CNBC before it was on MSNBC.
Nonetheless, this is now the third high-profile NBC host in recent months to have previous sexual harassment accusations brought to light. The sources say the company settled with the woman for $40,000.
Matthews was formally reprimanded and the employee received separation-related compensation, the spokesperson said, declining to elaborate on the size of the payment, citing confidentiality.
Representatives for Matthews, 72, did not immediately respond to requests for comment. The latter was also the subject of several reports detailing his pattern of behavior, including discussions of a famous red button that he used to close his office door and other incredibly disturbing tidbits.
