Couric said she was unaware of any incidents taking her place during her time on the program, where she worked as an anchor between 1991 and 2006.
Couric, who co-hosted the show with Matt Lauer for no less than 15 years stated soon after the scandal exploded that: 'The whole thing's been very painful.
"The accounts I've read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it's completely unacceptable that any woman at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment", Couric stated.

Heyman | Astros acquire Gerrit Cole from Pirates
Luhnow characterized 's acquisition as having a "significant cost" because the Astros "love" the four players they're giving up. The 27-year-old was the Pirates Opening Day starter last season and went 12-12 with a 4.26 ERA and 196 strike-outs in 33 starts.
Couric went on to describe Lauer as a "kind and generous colleague" in her experience, and expressed admiration for how the "very hard situation" was handled by current "Today" anchors Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb. "I think I speak for many of my former colleagues when I saw this was not the Matt we knew". She said, "Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect". The truth is that a joke I created on late night television was only this, as it was utterly contrary to our brother-sister relationship. It's still very upsetting.
NBC News fired Matt Lauer on November 29 as a result of an internal complaint about "inappropriate sexual behavior". "But it was nice for me to be able to say that that was a joke", she explained. The journalist sat down with People magazine for an interview, where she spoke about the accusations against Lauer.
After the news broke, several anonymous women, who were former of current NBC employees, revealed Lauer, 60, allegedly harassed or assaulted them sexually. To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. I think companies certainly are in the midst of a lot of soul-searching and reexamining the culture that exists in their workplaces. Following those allegations, multiple women have come forward to accuse Lauer of harassment, and one former NBC employee said the two had an ongoing affair on corporate premises.
Couric has only spoken out once before about her longtime pal Lauer after a Twitter user called her out for her silence.
