In late March, Ms. Gamble lodged a complaint that accused Jeff Shell, who was the chief executive of NBCUniversal, of sexual harassment. It also raised allegations of bullying and discrimination at CNBC. The complaint, which ran more than a dozen pages, also named managers at CNBC’s international division.
That complaint kicked off an investigation that led to Mr. Shell’s firing last month, sending reverberations across NBCUniversal’s sprawling global enterprise. Michael Cavanagh, Comcast’s president, has stepped in to oversee NBCUniversal.
Comcast is still investigating aspects of Ms. Gamble’s complaint pertaining to discrimination at CNBC.
Ms. Gamble did not respond to a request for comment.
Mr. Shell has said that Ms. Gamble’s complaint “wildly misrepresents the facts of what happened.”
Mr. Shell’s abrupt dismissal placed CNBC at the center of its own dramatic corporate story. An enormously profitable global enterprise with bureaus in financial capitals including London and Dubai, CNBC is navigating many of the same challenges as other cable channels, as viewers abandon traditional TV for streaming services.
