She said she is only coming forward now because she is not satisfied with NBC's handling of sex harassment allegations against its former "Today" host Matt Lauer.

Tom Brokaw's defenders at NBC/MSNBC reportedly include, from left, Rachel Maddow, Maria Shriver, Andrea Mitchell and Mika Brzezinski.

"It is 4 a.m. on the first day of my new life as an accused predator in the universe of American journalism".

Ms. Vester's attorney, Ari Wilkenfeld, said, "My client stands by the allegations, which speak for themselves".

Tom Brokaw is raking up support from female journalists amid allegations he sexually harassed former NBC News employees across four decades.

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 report additionally detailed the claims of an nameless girl who informed the outlet Brokaw allegedly acted inappropriately towards her throughout her time as a manufacturing assistant within the 1990s.

Brokaw said he never sought an affair, and that Vester had approached him for advice. In it, he said, "I was ambushed and then perp walked across the pages of The Washington Post and Variety ... taken to the guillotine and stripped of any honor and achievement I had earned in more than a half century of journalism and citizenship".

"Back then had she reported something like this, I don't think anyone would've blinked", said Sarah Ellison of The Washington Post.

NBC News fired Lauer in November after another staffer complained about his inappropriate conduct starting at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. "And I was sitting at a borrowed desk, when I received a computer message from Tom Brokaw asking me what I was doing that night", she said in a statement.

Veteran news anchor Tom Brokaw denied an accusation of sexual harassment in a early-morning email to colleagues Friday. "As I remember her try out on TODAY did not go well". "I should not have gone but I emphatically did not verbally and physically attack her and suggest an affair in language right out of pulp fiction".

"Once again, our highest priority is to ensure we have a workplace environment where everyone feels safe and protected". He notes that her contract was not renewed, a detail Vester also shared with The Post.

Some of her relatives by marriage are very close friends. The company's general counsel Kim Harris has advised that "the review is nearing its conclusion, and we will have findings and further steps to share with you as soon as next week".
