NEW YORK –Two women have accused former NBC news anchor and current MSNBC contributor Tom Brokaw of sexual misconduct, according to the Washington Post.
In an article on Thursday, the Post reported that former NBC employee Linda Vester had come forward with allegations that Brokaw had made unwanted inappropriate sexual advances toward her in the 1990s. Brokaw denied the claims.
The article also cites another unnamed woman who made similar claims against Brokaw. He denied those charges, as well.
Vester was an NBC correspondent in the 1990s. “She said Brokaw made unwanted advances toward her on two occasions in the 1990s, including a forcible attempt to kiss her. Vester was in her 20s and did not file a complaint,” the Post reported.
The second woman was a young production assistant working for NBC when Brokaw was an anchor for the network.
“I met with Linda Vester on two occasions, both at her request, 23 years ago, because she wanted advice with respect to her career at NBC,” Brokaw said in a statement issued by NBC and reported by the Washington Post. “The meetings were brief, cordial and appropriate, and despite Linda’s allegations, I made no romantic overtures towards her, at that time or any other.”
