In a surprise to no one, CBS has now parted ways with 60 Minutes Executive Producer Jeff Fager.
CBS says that Fager “violated company policy,” but declined to elaborate.
A story in the New Yorker by Ronan Farrow published in August cited interviews with 19 current and former CBS employees who claimed Fager, only the second executive producer of “60 Minutes” and a former chairman of the news division, turned a deaf ear to instances of harassment even as three financial settlements paid to employees of the newsmagazine were related to allegations of discrimination or harassment.
A September report by the magazine detailed an allegation by one woman who accused Fager of groping her at a company event.
Sources tell FTVLive that Fager has not been in the 60 Minutes offices since CBS CEO Less Monnves was fired.
Today, the other shoe dropped and that was Jeff Fager.
