NBC paid a significant sum of money to an assistant producer on MSNBC's "Hardball with Chris Matthews" for two decades after she complained that he sexually harassed her, according to The Daily Caller.

An MSNBC spokesperson confirmed that the woman had complained to the network about sexual harassment, and said that Matthews had gotten a slap on the wrist in response.

The Daily Caller reported that the payment was in the amount of $40,000.

The woman complained to network executives that the 71-year-old Matthews had made inappropriate comments to her and told inappropriate jokes about her to others. They investigated and, according to NBC's response to the Daily Caller piece, issued a "formal reprimand" to Chris Matthews - finding his comments "inappropriate and juvenile" but not "propositions".

A review of the matter found that the comments attributed to Matthews were made in poor taste, but not meant as propositions, the spokesperson said.

The woman received separation-related compensation when she left MSNBC and has gone on to work in a number of high-profile media positions.

MSNBC did not confirm if this was the only claim against Matthews nor if the woman left the company exclusively due to this incident.

This would not be the first time Matthew's off-color comments have made the front page.

The longtime host of the political talk show "Hardball with Chris Matthews" is the latest in a series of powerful men in US media, entertainment and politics to have been accused of sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior.

"NBC refused to say whether this was the only sexual harassment claim against Chris Matthews", Hasson tweeted.

News of the allegations and settlement against Matthews come in the wake of a rough quarter for NBC, which saw Halperin and Matt Lauer both dismissed from the network after numerous separate allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct came to light.
