According to a new report from Fox News, CNN’s Brian Stelter’s newscaster wife has been accused of workplace bullying.
Per Fox News:
CNN’s Brian Stelter has built a career off anonymously sourced reports on behind-the-scenes media drama and his style of palace intrigue reporting is now happening to his own family, as his newscaster wife has been accused of workplace bullying by unnamed colleagues.
Stelter is married to NY1 traffic reporter and anchor Jamie Stelter, and her station has been plagued by a variety of issues, such as a lawsuit filed by five female anchors for age and gender discrimination that was settled last year.
Anonymous colleagues told Caitlin Moscatello of New York Magazine that Stelter is part of the problem in a piece headlined, “Inside the Petty, Vindictive, Career-Ruining Infighting at NY1” that was published on Monday.
Moscatello wrote after speaking with 51 former and current NY1 staffers “Colleagues say she and [business anchor Annika] Pergament began to behave like ‘high-school bullies,’ openly gossiping about co-workers — sometimes with their mics still on.”
One anonymous staffer told Moscatello “a lot of people don’t like working with Jamie.” Another said “People would avoid her.”
TV news blogger Scott Jones wrote “It appears Brian isn’t the only bully in the Stelter family” after reading the piece.
