NEW YORK (AP) -- A group of 65 women in the television industry have circulated a letter in support of NBC's Tom Brokaw after he was accused by a former colleague of unwanted sexual advances.

The women say he has treated all of them with fairness and respect, giving them opportunities for advancement and championing successes in their careers.

Maria Shriver, Rachel Maddow, Andrea Mitchell, Kelly O'Donnell, Anne Thompson and Kristen Welker are among the women who put their names to the letter.

The women wrote that they know Brokaw "to be a man of tremendous decency and integrity."

Brokaw denies the former colleague's accusations.
