CNN has fired senior producer Teddy Davis over claims of inappropriate behavior.
“A comprehensive investigation was conducted as soon as this matter was brought to our attention. The behavior attributed to Mr. Davis does not align with the standards and values of CNN and Mr. Davis is no longer with the company,” a CNN spokesperson said Wednesday in a statement.
Davis served as producer on the network’s State of the Union, hosted by Jake Tapper, prior to his termination.
According to a source at CNN, the network’s internal investigation into Davis surfaced instances of the ousted producer making fellow colleagues uncomfortable. There were no reports of physical or sexual assault.
In response to news of Davis’ firing, Tapper tweeted that he was “fully supportive” of CNN’s decision.
