Tom Brokaw has been accused of sexual harassment by Linda Vester, a former war correspondent for NBC News. She’s shared her allegations with Variety, alleging that Brokaw — the lead anchor on NBC’s nightly news program for more than two decades as well as a host on both “Today” and “Meet the Press” — harassed and groped her in the early-to-mid 1990s.
Vester claims that the first incident took place in 1993, while she was covering Pope John Paul II’s trip to Denver, Colo. “We were in the Denver bureau, and there was a conference room. I’m standing there, and Tom Brokaw enters through the door and grabs me from behind and proceeds to tickle me up and down my waist,” she tells Variety. “I jumped a foot and I looked at a guy who was the senior editor of ‘Nightly,’ and his jaw was hanging open. Nobody acted like anything wrong was happening, but I was humiliated.”
