Katie Couric breaks her silence on Matt Lauer's sexual harassment claims.
The 60-year-old journalist served as Lauer's Today show co-host from 1997 to 2006, had yet to speak out after her former colleague was fired last week for "inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace."
On Friday, an Instagram user commented on Couric's most recent picture of her and her daughter, Carrie, asking why she hadn't said anything about the claims against Lauer.
Couric replied, writing, "It's incredibly upsetting and I will say something when I'm ready to. Thanks for your interest."
