Katie Couric has opened up for the first time following Matt Lauer’s abrupt firing from NBC and claimed she had “no idea” about the disgraced “Today” show co-host’s inappropriate behavior when she worked with him.

Couric, 61, told People that learning about Lauer’s lewd behavior was “painful” for her.

Couric and Lauer hosted the “Today” show together from 1991 to 2006 before she left to anchor “CBS Evening News.”
