"Lestlie has made me a better executive, and I have learned how to lead from him", Ross said.

He said he never misused his position to harm or hinder anyone's career.

The employees also allege that Fager turned a blind eye when other male employees engaged in similar behavior, according to Farrow's account.

Moonves, 68, has been a vocal supporter of the #MeToo movement, and helped establish the Commission on Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace.

He adds that 19 current and former employees told him that Jeff Fager, the former chairman of CBS News and the current executive producer of "60 Minutes", allowed harassment in the division. As the Hollywood Reporter notes, 14 CBS News employees came forward with allegations against Rose. "It is a challenging place to do well and promotions are earned on merit and are not based on gender".
