Farrow's Catch and Kill book alleges that former Today entertainment booker Melissa Lonner is one of seven women who signed non-disclosure agreements with NBC years before Lauer was fired for sexual misconduct. Farrow discovered her identity after meeting with Ann Curry. Farrow writes in his book that Curry "told me that complaints about Lauer verbally harassing women in the office were well known in her day — and that once, in 2010, a colleague had pulled her into an empty office and broken down, saying Lauer had exposed himself and propositioned her." Lonner never reported the alleged encounter to her bosses, but did tell Curry, who reported it to two NBC executives whom she declined to name. Lonner was fired in 2013 but later signed a non-disclosure agreement that prevents her from talking. The network disputed that her payout was related to the Lauer incident.
