NBC News Booker Matt Zimmerman Fired Amid Sexual Misconduct Claims



Matt Zimmerman is out at NBC News. Zimmerman was fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct and sexual harassment by two women at the news division. Matt Zimmerman was the senior VP of booking, news and entertainment and worked with NBC since at least 2004 and primarily handled bookings on “Today” and other NBC News programs.  One has to wonder if there will be anyone left in the news rooms after the purge.

Matt Zimmerman, a veteran of NBC News, has been fired amid allegations of inappropriate conduct with two women at the news division.

“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result, he has been dismissed,” an NBC News spokesperson said Tuesday in a statement.

Sources say the allegations were recently brought to the attention of human resources. At issue were multiple relationships with women who were junior to Zimmerman and, in at least one case, a direct report, said one source. NBC News policy stipulates that such relationships must be disclosed to human resources. Zimmerman, who was a senior VP at NBC News, is a veteran of The Today Show and in 2014 was elevated to lead a streamlined NBC News booking department.
