New York Public Radio (NYPR) CEO Laura Walker began 2018 determined to overhaul the organisation’s approach to dealing with bullying and harassment, and in turn, gain the confidence of cynical and disillusioned staff. It was also vital to restore the faith of listeners, donors and sponsors who held NYPR to a higher standard than most media outlets and were essential to its survival. But despite swiftly sacking two allegedly abusive hosts, introducing HR reforms and launching an investigation into the extent of discrimination and bullying, many staffers were far from satisfied. They still sought answers as to exactly what senior management knew and did about past incidents, and felt that NYPR leadership had not been made sufficiently accountable.
