CBS Corp. Chairman Leslie Moonves is under pressure on multiple fronts, including being suspended from the board of the USC School of Cinematic Arts, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The move comes as Moonves is caught in a scandal over sexual misconduct allegations.
Now Moonves is stepping down from a board position on an anti-sexual harassment commission chaired by Anita Hill, according to THR.
“Moonves has decided to recuse himself from his role as a commissioner to Hill’s Commission on Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, a spokesperson from the Commission told THR on Wednesday,” the publication reports.
Moonves faces an investigation at CBS following the publication July 27 of a Ronan Farrow story in The New Yorker containing sexual misconduct allegations against Moonves from six women.
