’60 Minutes’ chief Fager out at CBS

CBS "60 Minutes" executive producer Jeff Fager says he’s leaving the company, after being named in recent stories that accused him of fostering an abusive workplace.

CBS News President David Rhodes announced the departure on Wednesday. It came only three days after CBS Corp. Chairman Leslie Moonves was ousted following sexual misconduct charges.

An outside law firm has been investigating Fager following reports in the New Yorker that he groped women in parties and protected men accused of misconduct. Fager has denied the charges.

His second-in-command, Bill Owens, has been put in charge temporarily.
