Amid a broadening investigation by New York Attorney General Letitia James into the legacy brands of the CBS media empire, longtime CBS Radio host Dan Taylor has abruptly left the company, The New York Post reports.
“The New York AG’s office is investigating CBS Radio for workplace misconduct for at least six months, including explosive harassment allegations against Taylor and other hosts that were documented by The Post last year, according to one person familiar with the investigation,” The Post reports. “Those included accusations that Taylor, a 40-year veteran who read the news and spun oldies during weekday afternoons at CBS Radio, referred to another radio host as a ‘f–king Jew bastard,’ called a marketing manager a ‘dyke’ and described a potential co-worker as ‘faggy,’ according to an HR complaint to CBS Radio that The Post had obtained.”
Taylor also allegedly invited a 23-year-old subordinate to his hotel room and bought her a massage during an employee vacation, the paper reported.
“The CBS Radio probe appears to be an outgrowth of the sexual misconduct investigation into former CBS CEO Les Moonves, who was ousted last year amid accusations that he sexually harassed female employees, sources said,” The Post reports. Moonves has denied the allegations.
