- Two ViacomCBS executives are no longer with the company. Peter Dunn was the president of the CBS Television Station Group, which includes KCAL9, and David Friend, who was the group's chief news executive. The move follows an investigation into both men after numerous employees made claims they engaged in abusive and racist behavior. Both men were based in New York. Dunn's attorney says he is disappointed in the decision and denies the allegations. CBS said in part tonight that the action is "appropriate and necessary."
