Ann officially announced her departure from NBC News in January 2015.
Ann revealed to the Washington Post that Matt Lauer, former host of NBC’s Today, sexually harassed an NBC female reporter in 2012. She stated that she immediately approached two members of NBC’s management team after being informed about the harassment from the victim.
The revelation came when Matt Lauer was let go by NBC in November 2017, following the sexual misconduct allegations. In her interview with PEOPLE, Ann accused of former sexual harassment that existed on the show when she was working as a co-host. Ann further added that she felt for the women who had to go through such an inappropriate incident and added the same occurrence led her exit from the show.

On 29 November 2017, Matt Lauer was fired when the solid proofs behind the allegations were verified, and the NBC's executives came to know about the matter. It was the first time in Matt's 20 years in NBC that he was reported of the allegations. The company has thus presented with the reasons that meet up to Matt's innocence.
