Former public radio host accused of sexual misconduct by author
A former public radio host in New York City who left his show earlier this year has been accused of sexual misconduct by an author and some of his former colleagues.
Suki Kim said she met former WNYC “The Takeaway” host John Hockenberry in 2014 as a guest on the radio program. He later sent her a series of emails that made her uncomfortable, asking for her home address so he could write her letters and entitling a subject line: “Need another dose of you,” she wrote in an article published on New York Magazine’s website.
Hockenberry, 61, WNYC and its parent company did not immediately respond to an Associated Press request for comment.
