CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves also faced allegations of misconduct, and was removed from the company last weekend after at least 12 women came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct in a pair of New Yorker articles authored by Pulitzer Prize-winner Ronan Farrow.

"If you repeat these false accusations without any of your own reporting to back them up you will be held responsible for harming me", Fager replied. "Instead, they terminated my contract early because I sent a text message to one of our own CBS reporters demanding that she be fair in covering the story", Fager said.

CBS News on Wednesday announced that Fager would be leaving the company "effective immediately" amid allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Hurricane Florence threatens millions on US East Coast
A crew of about 80 rescuers from Montgomery County is headed to SC to help deal with Hurricane Florence and its aftermath. It is poised to slow to a crawl there and then drift to the southwest , unloading disastrous amounts of rain.

Longtime producer of the popular CBS News program "60 Minutes", Jeff Fager, stepped down from his position on Wednesday, after violating "company policy", new memos show.

CBS correspondent Jericka Duncan spoke out Wednesday night about a text message exchange she had with "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager over the weekend that pushed Fager out of the company.

In November 2017, CBS News dropped Charlie Rose following a Washington Post investigation detailing allegations of unwanted sexual advances toward women. "It was. I'll have more reporting on this tonight", she tweeted.

A state of emergency has also been declared in Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina , Virginia and Washington. Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, he said: "Disaster is at the doorstep and it's coming in".

Fager said in a statement today that "my language was harsh, and despite the fact that journalists receive harsh demands for fairness all the time, CBS did not like it".

The investigation into Fager by an outside law firm is not complete. "I really felt like this was one of the most sexist places I've ever worked", Sarah Johansen, who worked as an intern in the 2000s and alleged Fager groped her, told the New Yorker. And Fager allowed a senior producer, Michael Radutzky, to engage in a pattern of abusive conduct in the workplace over a number of years - including an incident in which he allegedly twisted a female staffer's arm behind her back.

"Despite Charlie's important journalistic contribution to our news division, there is absolutely nothing more important, in this or any organization, than ensuring a safe, professional workplace - a supportive environment where people feel they can do their best work", Rhodes said in a memo previous year. The programme 60 Minutes, which airs on Sunday evenings, was first broadcast in 1968.
