CBS Fires Two Executives Following Investigation into KYW Workplace Culture

April 8th, 2021
blind applications

CBS has terminated two national executives this week who were implicated in a scathing report about abusive behavior and failure to retain journalists of color at the network’s Philadelphia affiliate KYW. The executives, one of whom was a former station manager, were accused of bullying female managers, not hiring more minorities for newsroom work, and racist and homophobic disparaging remarks towards two longtime on-air personalities. Both executives were placed on administrative leave by the network following the report’s release in late January. Both have continually denied the allegations.

A former vice president of news and a station manager were interviewed for the report and detailed the toxic culture stemming from the two New York-based executives. Former employees at other CBS affiliates raised similar complaints regarding treatment at their offices. The report came following the 2018 ouster of CBS head Leslie Moonves for sexual misconduct and other allegations. Since the removal of Moonves and other powerful executives accused of various unprofessional behaviors, the network has seen an increase in diverse content and on-air personalities in news, sports, and entertainment. Locally, the news community and viewers have rallied around the two veteran journalists targeted by the hateful speech.

Despite all the progress made, workers are still being abused and harassed by employers for racial, gender, and other differences that should not matter.
