CBS Boss Les Moonves Resigns Over #MeToo Sexual Harassment Allegations
September 10, 2018
Hours after CBS chief executive Les Moonves resigned, his wife Julie Chen was a no-show on the season premiere of "The Talk." In a statement to Inside Edition, Chen, who also hosts the network's hit, "Big Brother," said she would return to the talk show soon. Her husband is the most powerful executive to be brought down in the Me Too movement. Moonves stepped aside after a second article in The New Yorker chronicled new claims of assault and harassment. The first New Yorker piece, published in July, brought allegations against Moonves to light.
