Head of CBS resigns
Leslie Moonves resigned as chairman and chief executive of CBS, after six more women stepped forward to accuse him of sexual harassment or assault going back to the 1980s. Moonves, 68, denies the allegations.
CBS said Moonves would not receive any severance benefits at this time, and any future payments would be dependent on the outcome of an independent investigation currently taking place. According to the statement from CBS, Moonves and CBS will donate $20m to organisations that support the #MeToo movement and equality for women in the workplace, to be deducted from any severance benefits. It was reported earlier that an exit deal could grant Moonves as much as $100m in stock.
