The producer of 60 Minutes launched things, colleagues physically assaulted, but management did nothing & # 039;

Lead producer Michael Radutzky allegedly spent more than a decade terrorizing his colleagues in 60 Minutes, sources say

It is alleged that a 60 Minutes senior producer abused other staff regularly, and management is accused of turning a blind eye despite knowing the situation.

Multiple sources have stated before the Washington Post that Michael Radutzky spent more than 10 years terrorizing his colleagues with threats and physical abuse.

Some detailed reports of a threatening voicemail and short-range cries, while others claimed that a senior producer had his arm twisted behind his back.

Worse yet, it was alleged that executive producer Jeff Fager not only knew about this behavior, but had tried to dissuade staff from acting through human resources.

The sources claimed that Radutzky's allegedly abusive behavior was tolerated because he was breaking a lot of important stories.

Multiple sources told the Post that Radutzky had effectively assaulted Ms. Gordon, confirming an accusation made in July in a New Yorker article on CBS and accusations of sexual assault against Les Moonves.

According to reports, Radutzky's fury was due to a series of recordings that Gordon had found regarding the films in dispute for the Oscars.

Ronan Farrow had reported in the magazine that Radutzky had "threatened to throw furniture at her and twisted her arm behind her back, causing her to scream".

In Farrow's article, a source also said that Fager had told Gordon not only to apologize to Radutzky, but to not continue with the complaint through human resources.

Radutzky and Fager have denied their alleged roles in the incident, and the lead producer told the Post that he "did not remember any threatening exchange with my colleagues," and Fager denied ever telling an employee that he did not bring a problem to HR.

A "senior official" at 60 minutes refuted the claim that Fager had asked Ms. Gordon to apologize to her alleged attacker, the Post reported, but had intervened to "mediate". the situation.

But the Post was told that Radutzky was disciplined for an incident that involved Vicki Gordon & # 39; No additional information was provided on the nature of the disciplinary action or its cause.

"Sometimes it was known that it was difficult to work with Radutzky," the source said.

Radutzky quietly left CBS in May.
