CNBC host fired after complaint against NBC CEO.

CNBC Anchor Hadley Gamble Leaves Network Following Sexual Harassment Complaint

Reports have emerged that Hadley Gamble, a distinguished journalist for CNBC, has left the network just weeks after filing a sexual harassment complaint against former NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell. Comcast, NBC’s parent company, confirmed Gamble’s departure in a statement.

Gamble’s Complaint

Gamble filed her complaint prior to Shell’s ouster, claiming that the two had been involved in an affair that began more than a decade earlier. She alleged that Shell had spent years pursuing a sexual relationship with her and that she ultimately relented, agreeing to the relationship only because she was afraid her career would suffer if she continued to refuse him. “It became clear to her that rebutting his advances would probably damage her career,” the complaint read.

Shell’s Exit

Comcast announced Shell’s exit on April 23, following an investigation into a complaint of inappropriate conduct. Shell also released a statement at the time, admitting to the relationship.

“Today is my last day as CEO of NBCUniversal. I had an inappropriate relationship with a woman in the company, which I deeply regret. I’m truly sorry I let my Comcast and NBCUniversal colleagues down, they are the most talented people in the business and the opportunity to work with them the last 19 years has been a privilege,” he said.

Gamble’s Departure

According to a report from the New York Post, Gamble only filed the complaint when she learned that her contract, which was set to expire, was going to be allowed to lapse without renewal. CNBC released a statement wishing her every success in her future endeavors.

  • Gamble has been a distinguished journalist for more than a decade for CNBC
  • Undertaking highly visible and challenging assignments
  • Developing deep expertise in the Middle East and beyond
  • Her initiative and drive have secured valuable interviews with several world political leaders

It is unclear what the future holds for Gamble, but her departure from CNBC marks the end of an era for the network.
