(CBS NEWS) – A woman who worked as a war correspondent for NBC News said Tom Brokaw groped her, twice tried to forcibly kiss her and made inappropriate overtures attempting to have an affair, according to two reports published Thursday.
Linda Vester told Variety and The Washington Post the misbehavior from the longtime news anchor at the network took place in NBC offices in Denver and New York in the 1990s, when she was in her 20s. Variety reports that Vester, now 52, showed it journals from the time that corroborated the story. Variety adds that, “Two friends who Vester told at the time corroborated her story” to the publication.
Brokaw anchored the “NBC Nightly News” for 22 years and hosted “Today” and “Meet the Press.”
Brokaw, who is 78 and has been married since 1962, denied doing anything inappropriate.
