The latest InFOCUS Podcast, presented by dot.fm, expands on the Radio + Television Business Report’s coverage on October 6 of how a radio or television company should act when one of its high-profile employees becomes the subject of allegations that not only harm the individual, but could also damage the station they are associated with.
The topic is today a big one, largely due to claims offered by three women who once worked with a Chicago-based morning show host employed by Hubbard Broadcasting. One of the women is a former co-host who exited in December 2020.
Allegations are just that, claims. But, a radio or TV station can’t just sit there while its employee is tarnished through social media and, quite frankly, the crosstown linear media competition.
What’s the first best act a station’s management should take?
Scott McIntyre, a partner in the labor and employment practice at the law firm of BakerHostetler, joins us from its Cincinnati office to answer this and other timely questions in an interview with RBR+TVBR Editor-in-Chief Adam R Jacobson.
