Matt Lauer Embarrassed, Ashamed and ‘Repairing the Damage’


Matt Lauer Embarrassed and Ashamed … ‘Repairing the Damage’

Matt Lauer has a new job — cleaning up the mess he’s created in his personal and professional lives.

The fired “Today” show co-host says he’s “embarrassed and ashamed” … but also claimed that some of the allegations against him are “untrue or mischaracterized.”

A statement from Matt Lauer: “There are no words to express my sorrow and regret the pain I have caused others by words and actions…”

Lauer’s ex-co-workers Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb read his statement at the top of the “Today” show Thursday morning — and in it he said his new full-time job was doing some “soul searching” in order to repair the damage.

He did not specify which of the myriad allegations of sexual misconduct were untrue, in his eyes.
