CNBC shared an anchor who said the former CEO sexually assaulted her
CNBC announced Tuesday that it has parted ways with anchor and senior correspondent Hadley Gamble after former NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Schell was accused of sexual harassment.
Describing Gamble as an “outstanding journalist” with “extensive experience in the Middle East and beyond,” CNBC wished him a prosperous future.
“His initiative and drive earned him valuable interviews with several world political leaders. We wish him success in his future work,” the report said.
THE The New York Times CNBC and Gamble “negotiated a financial settlement of more than $1 million in connection with his departure, according to a person with knowledge of the decision.”
Breitbart News reported in April that Jeff Shell left the company after admitting to an “inappropriate relationship” with a woman.
“Today is my last day as CEO of NBCUniversal. I had an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the company, and I deeply regret it. “I am sorry to have disappointed my colleagues at Comcast and NBCUniversal, who are some of the most talented people in the industry and it has been a privilege to work with them over the past 19 years,” Shell said in a statement.
NBCU’s parent company, Comcast, said it hired an outside firm to investigate the woman’s complaint, later identified as Hadley Gamble. Speak Time:
In late March, Ms. Gamble filed a lawsuit against Jeff Schell, the former chief executive of NBCUniversal, alleging sexual harassment. He also made allegations of harassment and discrimination against CNBC. Officials from CNBC’s international division were also named in the more than ten-page complaint.
The complaint sparked an investigation that led to Mr. Shell’s dismissal last month, affecting NBCUniversal’s broader global business. Comcast chairman Michael Kavanagh has stepped in to lead NBCUniversal.
However, Shell said Gamble’s complaint “misrepresents the facts of what happened.”
CNBC also investigated whether Gamble used a romantic relationship with private equity investor Tom Barrack to land an interview with former White House adviser Jared Kushner. Although the investigation found that Gamble had an affair with Barrack, it also failed to prove that the affair was improperly disclosed.
