Lester Holt, NBC Crew Found With Radiation in Japan
NBC correspondent Lester Holt revealed on Wednesday’s Today show that minor traces of radiation had been found on him and members of his crew while they were covering the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. They had been reporting from near the Fukushima plant, but all news crews were forced to leave the area when the threat of a meltdown increased. NBC had the crew screened once they got to a safer location, and Holt had radiation on his shoes despite having been carefully scrubbed. Holt showed a video of himself being examined with a Geiger counter.
