Former Executive Producer of ABC News Shelly Ross has accused journalist Chris Cuomo of sexual harassment.
Shelly Ross has finally opened about the sexual harassment she had faced in her early years.
The former executive producer of ABC News Ross opened about the case in an op-ed in the New York Times after 16 years.
It was back in 2005 when the veteran journalist became a victim of an unforgettable harassment done by Chris Cuomo, who worked under her guidance at that time.
However, Cuomo, who is now a journalist and news analyst at the prestigious CNN, was revealed to write an apology email after the incident took place.
Ross has also cleared that she considers the incident that happened in 2005 was a hostile act rather than sexual in nature. Furthermore, she believes the act was done by Cuomo to ‘belittle his female former boss’.
"Now that I think of it … I am ashamed," read the subject line of a 2005 email Chris Cuomo "wrote me, one hour after he sexually harassed me," Shelley Ross, a TV journalist, writes. She would "like to see him journalistically repent." https://t.co/dRFh6671PD
