Ontario’s public broadcaster, TVO, confirms it’s hiring a third party to investigate an allegation of sexual harassment against host Steve Paikin.
Former Toronto mayoral candidate Sarah Thomson made allegations on her website on the weekend. According to Thomson, in 2010 she had lunch with a talk show host who propositioned her during a lunch with her assistant.
The network says based on the evidence, there is no reason to move Paikin as host of “The Agenda.”
