Episode 24: FIghting Harassment
Release Date: 03/08/2018
Harassment comes in all forms. Today's guest is Nita Wiggins, an esteemed journalism professor at ESJ-Paris where she is training the next generation of journalists.
Her upcoming book, “Civil Rights Baby: My Story of Race, Sports, and Breaking Barriers in American Journalism” is the story of her 20 years in American television.
Despite her major successes, Nita was exposed to much harassment in her career. The late Roger Ailes no longer runs Fox News and Bill O’Reilly is gone from the anchor chair but painful stories from the past still linger. Nita says her health and career, as well as that of other female TV employees were adversely affected by institutionalized sexual discrimination.
