Bucknell University Removes Disgraced Former CBS President Les Moonves’ Name From Campus, Might Rescind His Honorary Degree

Bucknell University has removed former CBS chairman and Bucknell alumnus Les Moonves’ name from a “prominent room” on campus after sexual misconduct allegations against him surfaced. WNEP reports that the university is also considering “rescinding” Moonves’ honorary degree after the TV bigwig announced his departure from the network on Sunday. “The actions described in new reports concerning Les Moonves are unconscionable,” the school said in a statement Monday. “They stand in direct conflict with the values that form the foundation of what it means to be a Bucknellian.” The university wiped all mention of Moonves from its website in July, when sexual misconduct allegations against him were first made public. Moonves gave the university’s commencement speech in 2016. The University of Southern California also suspended the use of Moonves’ name on its campus facilities while investigations were ongoing in early August.
