Two radio hosts suspended for misconduct
longtime hosts at a New York City public radio station were suspended Wednesday while the station investigates unspecified accusations of inappropriate conduct.
New York Public Radio CEO Laura Walker announced the suspensions of WNYC’s Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz.
She said the company wants to ensure a “harassment-free workplace,” but didn’t give details of the accusations.
WNYC reporter Ilya Marritz said on the air that he had spoken with women who made complaints about both Lopate and Schwartz. (AP)
