NBC News has fired the executive who spearheaded its talent booking department following accusations of inappropriate conduct with multiple women.
Matt Zimmerman, senior VP of booking, news and entertainment, had been with NBC News since at least 2004. He was promoted in 2014 to head a unit designed to handle guest bookings for “Today” and other NBC News programs.
“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy. As a result he has been dismissed,” NBC News said in a statement.
