In a memo to staff on Friday, NBC News President Andrew Lack repeated that Brokaw "emphatically denies" the allegations.
Ms. Vester, in a video interview on Variety's website, said Mr. Brokaw "grabbed me behind my neck and tried to force me to kiss him". Charlie Rose wants to host a.
NBC had no comment on Brokaw's letter. "I believed her", she explained.
"I don't think that people who were victims would feel particularly supported by going to someone and asking for help, whether that person was in HR or that person was a colleague", said O'Brien, who went on to work at CNN and who now runs her own production company.
She told the Post that "the implication of his invitation" was clear.
Tom Brokaw vigorously denied an allegation of sexual harassment made by former NBC reporter Linda Vester, calling her an "angry" ex-colleague with a grudge against NBC News who is out to destroy his family and career.
The news reportedly stunned Lauer, who worked alongside Curry from 1997-2012.
Tom Brokaw accused of sexual harassment by former NBC correspondent.
"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.
In the letter, Brokaw said "I am not a flawless person". I was preparing to go back to Washington D.C., where I lived. Brokaw challenged other elements of her account and wrote that Vester "was coy, not frightened, full with office gossip including a recent rumor of an affair".
Vester left Fox in the mid-2000s to look after her children full-time. "I have issues from those two meetings 20 years ago?'" he continued. Vester told the Post and Variety that Brokaw, in both London and NY, grabbed the back of her neck and pulled her in forcefully in an attempt to kiss her.
Brokaw noted that he deeply resents "the pain and anger [Vester] inflicted on my wife, daughters, and granddaughters", women he said are of "considerable success and passion about women's rights".
But the 60-year-old stipulated that "I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC".
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.
"I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women", she added.
