Following Lauer's ousting from Today after 20 years of co-anchoring the morning show, another source at NBC tells ET, "It is really clear that we need to change the way we do our day-to-day work and figure out our priorities."
The source adds, "It’s been a rough week for everyone."
Kelly has not shied away from reporting about Lauer's termination on Megyn Kelly Today, and has even encouraged the women accusing him of sexual misconduct to tell their story on her show.
"As hard as it is to report on one of our own colleagues, we remain committed to telling peoples’ stories if they choose to come forward," Kelly said of NBC breaking the news about the journalist. "The women in this case too, the Matt Lauer case, are invited and welcome to do exactly that on this show. We have been that place on all the other cases and we will be that place, as well as for the accused."
