Katie Couric Says She No Longer Speaks With Matt Lauer and Was ‘Shocked’ by Sexual Assault Allegations
Katie Couric’s upcoming memoir has made waves for shocking excerpts that have ruffled feathers in TV news circles.

Now, in her first interview about the new book, Couric gives more detail on some of the headline-making pieces — most notably, her former “Today” show co-anchor, Matt Lauer — saying that her words have been “cherry-picked and twisted” by leaked excerpts.

Couric no longer speaks to Lauer, she reveals in a new cover story with People magazine, released on Wednesday. She says she was “shocked” by the allegations, calling Lauer’s behavior “callous” and “grossly inappropriate.”
