Moonves to remain as unpaid adviser at CBS

CBS CEO Leslie Moonves hit with six additional claims of sexual harassment and assault

Julie Chen has made an announcement after reports emerged that her husband Leslie Moonves has left his position as CEO of CBS due to allegations of sexual assault and sexual violence.

Shares of CBS are moving higher before the opening bell in what will be the first day of trading after the ouster of Les Moonves, the company's chairman. Moonves acknowledged relations with three of the women but said they were consensual, and that he had never used his position to hurt the careers of women.

Moonves and CBS will also contribute $20 million to support the #MeToo movement, the company said in a filing. Some of the women say Moonves retaliated against them and that their careers suffered after they rebuffed his advances.

Chen later issued a two-sentence statement on the matter on The Talk.

"Untrue allegations from decades ago are now being made against me that are not consistent with who I am", Moonves wrote in a statement of his exit.

CBS announced on Sunday evening that the embattled executive would step down on Monday, following another weekend write-up from journalist Ronan Farrow. He will take with him "certain fully accrued and vested compensation and benefits", and any future payments are dependent on the result of the ongoing independent investigation.

Moonves joined CBS as head of entertainment in 1995, and has been CEO of CBS Corp. since 2006, leading the CBS network, Showtime and other entities.
