Kelly, whose short stint with NBC ended last October, praised women who previously worked at the peacock network to Page Six.

"Let’s not lose sight of the forces for good in this story, like former Lauer co-host Ann Curry, who, despite the risks, sounded the alarm on Lauer in 2012 after a young woman complained to her, and Meredith Vieira, who, when confronted with Brooke Nevils’ account, told her to go report it," Kelly told the outlet.

Curry, in 2018, recalled to The Washington Post: "A woman approached me and asked me tearfully if I could help her. She was afraid of losing her job. ... I believed her."

At the employee's request, Curry did not name her, but did specifically call out Lauer.

"I told management they had a problem and they needed to keep an eye on him and how he deals with women," said Curry.

USA TODAY has reached out to a rep for Kelly for further comment.

"I have never assaulted anyone or forced anyone to have sex. Period," Lauer wrote in his letter. "My silence has been a mistake. Old stories are being recycled, titillating details are being added, and a dangerous and defamatory new allegation is being made. All are being spread as part of a promotional effort to sell a book. It’s outrageous. So, after not speaking out to protect my children, it is now with their full support I say 'enough.'"

Lauer denied Nevils' allegations as "categorically false." He said the two had a "sexual encounter" at the 2014 Sochi Olympics but maintained their relationship was "extramarital, but consensual."
