Detroit TV anchor accused of harassment placed on leave

07 Décembre 2017

WXYZ TV, Channel 7, has placed its morning news anchor on administrative leave as it investigates allegations of sexual misconduct.

Rideout also said he has knowledge this was not an isolated incident, and claims numerous other employees say they were also shown explicit pictures and endured sexual innuendos. Murri said the station is developing a timeline for investigating the accusations.

Rideout also made reference to retiring WXYZ anchor Stephen Clark and Detroit Free Press editorial page editor Stephen Henderson but offered no specifics.

The director said he was "troubled and distressed" by the allegations and offered his support to the victims who have come forward.

WXYZ announced the action Wednesday on its website after a Detroit pastor, Rev. W.J. Rideout, said at a news conference the television station ignored the complaints made by employees against Maddox.

Rideout said the yet-unnamed alleged victims have retained attorneys. It's too bad that you had to scare women into getting what you wanted from them.
