Former NBC anchor Linda Vester says she was sexually harassed by Tom Brokaw, says a Variety report published on Thursday.

According to the female journalist — who left NBC in 1999 and began anchoring her own Fox News show through 2006 — the former NBC Nightly News anchor allegedly tried to kiss her on two separate occasions, groped her in an NBC conference room, and showed up to her hotel room uninvited.

Vester — who was 28 at the time of the alleged incident — didn't report Brokaw to the police or NBC human resources because she feared it would tarnish her career.

In regards to the alleged assault in the NBC conference room, Vester recalls:

Megyn Kelly Says Gun Laws Won't Change Following Vegas Shooting & Cuts Off Tom Brokaw While He's Encouraging Audience To Assemble Against NRA — Watch!

Megyn Kelly doesn't feel in control.

Not only was that the case when the NBC host felt "helpless" watching horrifying footage of the Las Vegas shooting, it was evident when she harshly cut off her guest mid-answer on Megyn Kelly Today.

The former Fox News host conducted a town hall-style broadcast on Tuesday to discuss gun control following the deadly shooting on Sunday.

While the guests on the panel were fired up to fight for stricter gun laws — urging audience members to organize against the "other side" (a.k.a. the NRA) — Kelly's take on the matter was more of the "we're fucked" variety.

In her monologue, the journalist cynically pointed out that the most recent tragedy — dubbed the worst mass shooting in U.S. history — would not change anything about America's gun laws, because that's just the way things go. She lamented:

Filed under: TV NewsPolitikNews

He's back!

Brian Williams was infamously put on suspension from NBC Nightly News back in February 2015 after he was caught in a lie about an emergency helicopter landing that never really happened.

And while Allison Williams' father has been serving at MSNBC's daytime desk since September, he'll finally be getting back to primetime this February.

The news network announced today that Brian will be joining Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, Andrea Mitchell, and Chuck Todd to co-anchor their overage of the Iowa Caucus starting next Monday!

Part of us feels a little bad for Brian since he seems to have embellished his story to please his higher-ups. But then again, this does make him far less trustworthy as a newsman. What do YOU think??

Reports Say Brian Williams Is Expected To Stay At NBC — But Not As An Anchor! Lester Holt Will Take Over Nightly News!

Filed under: TV NewsTwitterControversy

According to reports Lester Holt will anchor NBC Nightly News in place of Brian Williams.

Brian Williams got in quite a bit of hot water after he got caught embellishing stories.

Back in February, he wound up suspended from his position at NBC as the anchor on Nightly News. But now, CNN is reporting that the 56-year-old has struck a tentative deal with the network to keep him on their roster after his punishment is up in August.

But, the report says he won't be getting all cozy in his familiar chair behind the Nightly News desk.

According to the Wall Street Journal's Twitter account, Lester Holt will be filling that seat. They wrote:

People have been wondering whether or not Brian was going to be welcomed back to NBC after his scandal died down, and now it looks like we have our answer.

While it appears Brian will remain at the network once his suspension runs its course, we don't yet know the extent of the role he will play — only that it will be a new one.

Those who are familiar with this tentative plan told CNN that the network could open up about the TV personality's position as early as Thursday.

The Saturday Night Live alum chatted with Matt Lauer on NBC Nightly News and explained that he's aiming to fully recover before he performs in front of audiences — especially trying to improve his memory and balance.

Though performing seems like the biggest motivator for the 46-year-old's rehabilitation, he admits that he's not sure he'll be "funny" again, saying:

"I love comedy. I wonder how I'm going to be funny again. How I'm going to get to remembering my identity. What do I do? The fans let me know we can't wait for you to come back. They can't wait for me to come back. I can't wait to make them laugh again."

We're so happy the comedian is on the road to recovery, and we can't wait to see him return to the stage!

Check out the emotional interview (below) to hear Morgan talk about the moment he found out his friend Jimmy Mack died from the accident.
