Report Departing Exec Mcpherson Accused Of Sexual Harassment

Multiple sexual harassment complaints against Steve McPherson were being investigated by ABC when he resigned as ABC Entertainment president on Tuesday, the Hollywood Reporter reported today (Thursday), citing an informed source. According to the trade publication, the network had been conducting an investigation into McPherson's behavior for the past three weeks. ABC declined to comment on the Reporter s account. But, in a statement, McPherson's lawyer, Tom Hoberman, said "Upon Steve McPherson returning to work from his vacation on Monday, he made a voluntary decision to resign and ABC accepted his resignation. It is not uncommon for high level executives to be the subject of gossip. ... That would include rumors of internal situations which can easily be misinterpreted or misrepresented. Seems like it goes with the territory, and there is nothing further to discuss."
