NEW YORK (AP) — One of the journalists who had been investigating “Today” show host Matt Lauer before NBC announced his firing over sexual misconduct allegations says accounts from more women are being vetted.

Ramin Setoodeh of Variety spoke on ABC’s “Good Morning America” along with his colleague, Elizabeth Wagmeister.

Hours after Lauer’s firing Wednesday, the trade publication posted what it said was a two-month investigation that included dozens of interviews with current and former staffers who asked to remain anonymous.

Setoodeh said Thursday the journalists have been “in contact with more women” and are “in the process of vetting their stories.”
