CBS and the law firm of Proskauer Rose have decided to delay the release of a probe into allegations of sexual harassment against former news anchor Charlie Rose. Instead, that probe will be combined with a separate investigation into multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against Les Moonves, the CEO, and Chairman of CBS. The report on the investigation into Rose and CBS News was expected to be completed and released in August.
Last week, the board of directors at CBS hired the law firms of Covington & Burling and Debevoise & Plimpton to look into the claims made in an explosive exposé by Ronan Farrow in The New Yorker, in which multiple women claim that Moonves sexually harassed them during their time at CBS.
The law firms are working to set up a system where employees will be able to anonymously contribute information to the report.
CBS said the findings will be delivered directly to the 14-member board of directors, but do not have a timetable for when the report will be finished.
