NEW YORK (AP) — A veteran TV news executive says CNN anchor Chris Cuomo sexually harassed her by squeezing her buttocks at a party in 2005.
Shelley Ross said in an opinion piece in The New York Times on Friday that Cuomo, who formerly reported to her at ABC News, greeted her with a bear hug and squeezed her buttocks while she was at a party with her husband.
She claims he sent an email to apologize. Cuomo said that he had sincerely apologized to the Times.
Cuomo has been criticised for his role in advising his brother and former governor of New York. Andrew Cuomo.
Andrew Cuomo resigned last week after multiple women made sexual harassment claims against him.
