Legendary NBC News reporter Tom Brokaw has been accused of sexual misconduct by two women, including a former NBC reporter.
“Linda Vester told Variety and the Washington Post that the misbehavior from the longtime news anchor at the network took place in NBC offices in Denver and New York in the 1990s, when she was in her 20s. Variety reports that Vester, now 52, showed them journals from the time that corroborated the story. Brokaw, who is 78 and has been married since 1962, denied doing anything inappropriate. “I met with Linda Vester on two occasions, both at her request, 23 years ago because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC,” Brokaw said in a statement to the two outlets issued through NBC News. “The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda’s allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her at that time or any other.” Another woman, who was not identified, made similar claims about Brokaw to the Post.”
