NBC News readying itself for bombshells in Ronan Farrow’s new book

Former MSNBC host Ronan Farrow is expected to drop a bombshell of a book Oct. 15 that will include references to former NBC “Today” anchor Matt Lauer.

  • “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators” will be released Oct. 15 after much speculation.
  • The book is expected to delve into claims that NBC allegedly try to squash Farrow’s investigation into Harvey Weinstein.
  • Farrow eventually departed NBC and took the reporting on Weinstein with him.
  • The expose on Weinstein caused huge waves in the broadcast industry and won Farrow a Pulitzer.
  • Now, NBC News is bracing for bombshells with the new book as it is widely expected to include references to both the Weinstein and Lauer cases.
  • Other reports from Page Six say that execs have pointed out that NBC has covered Lauer’s ouster “perhaps more extensively than anyone.”
  • Initial reports indicate Farrow’s book includes an interview with several of Lauer’s alleged victims.
  • Page Six is also reporting that one of the alleged victims will publicly identify herself.
