Variety ran a video interview with Vester that included some incidents not reported by The Post.
In a statement to The Post, Vester's lawyer said that "my client stands by the allegations which speak for themselves". She said Brokaw left when she broke away and made it clear she did not want any more.

Vester said the following year in New York, Brokaw sent her suggestive computer messages in the office before later announcing on the phone that he was coming to her hotel room. "Hard to believe it wasn't much more Look at Me than Me:Too". She told the Post Brokaw put her hands against his chest, pulled her closer and then invited her to later come to his office.
