WXYZ anchor Malcom Maddox placed on leave amid claims of sexual harassment

WXYZ management announced Wednesday they put morning news anchor Malcom Maddox on administrative leave after complaints of sexual harassment surfaced against him. Rideout also accused the station of covering up the claims.

Rideout says the employee wanted Maddox to stop texting, calling, emailing, and showing her explicit pictures, but that Maddox continued the behavior.

Rideout said the yet-unnamed alleged victims have retained attorneys. Channel 7 knew about it, Mike Murri knew about it, Rideout said.

Rideout also made reference to retiring WXYZ anchor Stephen Clark and Detroit Free Press editorial page editor Stephen Henderson but offered no specifics.

At a news conference, Rev. W.J. Rideout III, pastor of Our God's People Church in Detroit, called out WXYZ for not taking appropriate action after an employee made harassment claims against Malcom Maddox.

"And I want to tell you these victims, they're ready to speak out", Rideout said.
