A veteran NBC News executive has been fired amid allegations that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with at least one woman at the network, a spokesperson confirmed.
"We have recently learned that Matt Zimmerman engaged in inappropriate conduct with more than one woman", an NBC spokesperson said in a statement to the Daily News.
Matt Zimmerman, vice president of booking, news and entertainment, was booted from the network Tuesday afternoon. NBC News policy stipulates that such relationships must be disclosed to human resources.

Zimmerman handled booking for NBC's "Today" program until 2014, when he was elevated to an executive vice president's role that put him in charge of a collaborative booking unit formed within the news division. Journalist Emily Miller claimed on Twitter that Halperin "attacked" her and Halperin was dropped by his Game Change publisher as well as HBO, which had optioned his upcoming campaign 2016 book with writing partner John Heilemann.
Public sexual harassment and assault allegations have received increased attention after more than 60 women came forward to accuse movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of harassment and assault. Meanwhile, the TV news business, like the entertainment industry, also is bracing for more disclosures as social media has given victims a platform and companies adopt a zero-tolerance stance toward misconduct.
