Tavis Smiley: New PBS Report Details Alleged Sexual Harassment, Retaliatory Firings by Former Talk Show Host

PBS suspended Tavis Smiley’s self-titled talk show in 2017, citing “multiple, credible” accusations of sexual impropriety, harassment and abuse. Disturbing new details about that alleged misconduct surfaced Thursday via a report chronicling the network’s newly unsealed investigation.

The report, conducted by an external investigator hired by PBS and brought to light by our sister site Deadline, was made public as part of Smiley‘s continuing efforts to sue the network for breach-of-contract. PBS is countersuing, seeking $1.9 million in production advances.
