NBC News Senior VP Fired After Allegations of Sexual Harassment

NBC News fired Matt Zimmerman, senior vice president of booking for news and entertainment, on Tuesday following an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment.

A NBC spokesperson released a statement about Zimmerman.

“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,” the statement read.

New York Magazine and HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali was first to report NBC News fired Zimmerman.

Details of the allegations have yet to be released. According to Ali, there was one case in which Zimmerman had a relationship with an “underling” that wasn’t reported.

Zimmerman was with NBC News for 13 years and joined as a booker back in 2004, booking guests for the “Today Show.”

He is the latest person to be dismissed in a string of suspensions and firings that have resulted after influential figures were accused of sexual harassment.

Back in October, political analyst Mark Halperin was suspended from MSNBC and NBC News after he was accused of sexual harassment.
