CBS boss quits amid sex assaults claims

NEW YORK: US television giant CBS announced Sunday the immediate departure of powerful CEO Leslie Moonves, one of the biggest scalps in the #MeToo era, following a slew of escalating sexual misconduct allegations, reports AFP.

Moonves, who transformed the corporation into the most watched television network in the country, was one of the most respected executives in Hollywood until he was first publicly accused.

Two articles published by The New Yorker -- on July 27 and on the day that his departure was announced -- detailed allegations against the 68-year-old television titan from 12 different women.

CBS subsequently declared that he would depart as chairman, president and CEO "effective immediately," and that he and the network would donate $20 million to supporting the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace.
