NBCU finalizing settlement with CNBC reporter, who is exiting the company
NBCUniversal is finalizing a settlement with CNBC senior international correspondent Hadley Gamble, sources tell Axios.
Why it matters: Gamble filed a complaint earlier this year that accused named CNBC International executives of fostering a toxic workplace culture and made allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination against other executives.
Details: The multimillion-dollar settlement will see Gamble exit the company. In a statement, CNBC confirmed her departure.
- "Gamble has been a distinguished journalist for more than a decade for CNBC, undertaking highly visible and challenging assignments, and developing deep expertise in the Middle East and beyond. Her initiative and drive have secured valuable interviews with several world political leaders. We wish her every success in her future endeavors," the statement read.
- The parties are expected to announce that they have reached an agreement imminently.
- Comcast did not comment on the settlement.
The big picture: Gamble's internal complaint led to the investigation, and ultimate firing, of NBCU CEO Jeff Shell last month for sexual harassment.
- NBCU's parent Comcast hired outside counsel to investigate the complaint. It fired Shell for cause as a result.
