The Commercial Appeal - - News -

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.
