Two managers who were involved in the departure of disgraced radio host Jian Ghomeshi from the CBC are taking leaves of absence, according to the national broadcaster.
The CBC tweeted Monday afternoon that Todd Spencer, head of human resources, and Chris Boyce, executive director of radio and audio are taking leave, but provided no other details.
An internal memo sent to CBC staff by CBC’s executive vice-president of English services Heather Conway, and shared by journalist Jesse Brown, said the leaves are effective as of Monday “until further notice.”
“We recognize this is a difficult way to start off the year, but despite our current challenges, together we will get through this, and we do have a great future,” the memo said. Neither the tweet or the memo makes mention of Ghomeshi.
