Hollywood Scandals: USC Suspends Leslie Moonves from Board of Directors

August 1, 2018–The USC School of Cinematic Arts has announced its decision to suspend Leslie Moonves, the CBS CEO from their Board of Councilors due to various sexual allegations against him.

In a statement, the school says: “The School has suspended Les Moonves from its Board of Councilors. The School takes the recent allegations very seriously and will discuss further action when the Board convenes in October.”

USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism also announced Wednesday morning that it would hold off on using the media center’s current title, “The Julie Chen/Leslie Moonves and CBS Media Center,” for the time being until the investigation against Moonves has concluded.

Refraining from using the title was at the behest of Moonves and Chen, according to Annenberg.
