NBC Universal fired Senior Vice President for Booking, News & Entertainment Matt Zimmerman, following accusations of sexual misconduct, the company announced Tuesday.
“We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman at NBCU, which violated company policy,” a company spokesperson told TheWrap. “As a result he has been dismissed.”
The network declined to comment on the number of accusers or the nature of their accusations; Zimmerman could not be reached for comment.
Zimmerman, who joined the company in 2004, began overseeing guest booking for the network’s “Today” show in 2012.
Zimmerman is the latest casualty in what has become a nearly daily torrent of accusations about powerful men in media and politics.
