The claims about Mr. Brokaw shook an NBC news division still reeling from the ouster in November of Matt Lauer, the star "Today" show anchor, after numerous women at the network accused him of sexual harassment. "In the context of that conversation, we would like to share our perspectives on working with Tom Brokaw".

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

In response, Vester's lawyer, Ari Wilkenfeld, said she stands by her allegations, "which speak for themselves". "She felt it her duty to add her own story, not only to lend support to the other women who have already complained, but to demonstrate that this problem is not a new one, and that NBC needs to prioritize actually listening to and protecting their employees who have been victimized".

"My NBC colleagues are bewildered that Vester, who had limited success at NBC News, a modest career at Fox and a reputation as a colleague who had trouble with the truth, was suddenly the keeper of the flame of journalistic integrity".

Brokaw said Vester invited him to her NY hotel room.

Vester said she was in her 20s at the time, while Brokaw was 30 years older and one of the most powerful men in her business.

The Washington Post said NBC is facing "a wave of internal and outside skepticism" over whether it can reform its workplace culture.

Piyush Goyal , India's minister for railways and coal, tweeted: "I have ordered a senior level enquiry into the incident". A preliminary probe into the Kushinagar accident shows that it was the van driver who was at fault.

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

The news of Brokaw's alleged indecent behavior comes less than a year after NBC News employee Matt Lauer was sacked for inappropriate sexual behavior.

Legendary newsman Tom Brokaw issued a second statement about allegations that he was sexually inappropriate with a former NBC correspondent via an email to his colleagues. She also mentioned she was Catholic as a way of rebuffing his advances. No clenching her neck.

Daily sports headlines from across Gwinnett County, including high school, professional and college news. 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.

But he said he "did not verbally and physically attack her" as described in the interviews. "As I remember her try out on TODAY did not go well". Vester remained at Fox News until 2006. She told the Post Brokaw put her hands against his chest, pulled her closer and then invited her to later come to his office.

In his memo Friday, Mr. Lack said the review-led by NBC General Counsel Kim Harris, whom he said "has extensive experience in conducting reviews of this kind"-is nearing its conclusion, with findings to be shared as soon as next week".
