Former "Today" show anchor Katie Couric says in a new interview that she never knew about the allegations of sexual misconduct surrounding her former co-host Matt LauerMatthew (Matt) Todd LauerNBC's "Today" show surges in ratings after Lauer's departure Katie Couric breaks silence on Matt Lauer: Allegations "incredibly upsetting" Halperin, Rose accusers form group to fight harassment in the media MORE while she was at NBC.

Walgreens Boots Alliance celebrates latest CSR achievements
The pharmacy operator reported $1.31 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $1.21 by $0.10. The stock of Inotek Pharmaceuticals Corporation (NASDAQ:ITEK) earned "Neutral" rating by Piper Jaffray on Tuesday, January 3.

The TV journalist anchored the morning show from 1991 to 2006, while Lauer served as co-anchor from1997 to 2017.

The woman who submitted the complaint alleged Lauer began behaving inappropriately while in Russian Federation covering the Winter Olympics in 2014, according to NBC. It's still very upsetting.

After the news broke, several anonymous women, who were former of current NBC employees, revealed Lauer, 60, allegedly harassed or assaulted them sexually.

Lauer has since been replaced by Hoda Kotb, though for substantially less pay, with Kotb telling People, "No, I'm not making Matt Lauer money".

In a statement read on Today after his firing, Lauer said that while some of the allegations were "untrue or mischaracterized", "there is enough truth in these stories to make me feel embarrassed and ashamed".

Lauer apologized in a statement a day later. "There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by my words and actions", he said at the time. Because I am writing this, I still know the thickness of the disappointment and damage I have gone behind at home and in NBC.
