Brooke Nevils is a former NBC employee, who alleges Matt Lauer anally raped her in a hotel room at the Sochi Olympics in 2014. Nevils’ complaint about Lauer led to the co-anchor’s firing from the “Today” show in 2017.
At the time, NBC News kept Nevils’ identity anonymous from press reports at her request. The full details of her allegations have not been made public until now.
Brooke Nevils NBC
According to an interview she conducted with Arts & Sciences Magazine while she still worked at NBC, Nevils, a Missouri native, graduated from John’s Hopkins University in 2007 with a double major in political science and the Writing Seminars.
After college, she began her career as a page for NBC at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City. As a page, Nevil’s job was to greet the celebrity guests and get them to the set on time for their interview.
After her position as a page expired, Nevils moved onto a 10-month post as personal assistant to Today Show host Meredith Vieira. Her daily tasks were to fetch lunch and run errands, as well as gather research for the famous journalist and help her prep for interviews.
Nevils eventually landed a job as a producer for NBC. She told Arts & Sciences that her role involved 60+ hour work weeks, filled with pitching stories, doing research, finding guests and packaging the three-to-five minute segments on the show.
In 2014, her career also reached a new high. As the assistant producer for A Leap of Faith: A Meredith Vieira Special, Nevils was nominated for an Emmy award for outstanding feature story in a news magazine, along with the rest of the production team.
Nevils is also billed as a producer on several high-profile shows for NBC including Headliners, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? and Royal Wedding Watch.

Matt Lauer’s Accuser – Brooke Nevils Rape Allegations
In Ronan Farrow’s new book “Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies, and a Conspiracy to Protect Predators,” Nevils alleges that at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, Lauer anally raped her in his hotel room.”
“In Nevils’ account, she was tasked in Sochi with working with Meredith Vieira, who’d been brought back to the show to do Olympics coverage, and they ran into Lauer at the hotel bar one night, according to Variety.
At the end of the night, Nevils, who’d had six shots of vodka, ended up going to Lauer’s hotel room twice — once to retrieve her press credential, which Lauer had taken as a joke, and the second time because he invited her back, she says in the book.
Once she was in his hotel room, Nevils alleges, Lauer kissed her, then pushed her onto the bed and asked if she liked an*l sex.
Farrow writes that Nevils said she “declined several times,” but he allegedly “just did it” and didn’t use lubricant. Nevils reportedly claims the encounter was painful and that she “bled for days.”
“It was nonconsensual in the sense that I was too drunk to consent,” she reportedly tells Farrow in the book. “It was nonconsensual in that I said, multiple times, that I didn’t want to have an*l sex.”
Nevils says in the book that she had more sexual encounters with Lauer back in New York City, telling Farrow: “It was completely transactional. It was not a relationship.”
