Two universities are revoking journalism awards given to Charlie Rose after the news anchor was fired by CBS and PBS over sexual misconduct allegations.
Arizona State University and the University of Kansas on Friday announced that they would no longer honor awards presented to Rose in the past.
As the Washington Examiner reports, both institutions said they wanted to underline how serious they consider the allegations against Rose to be.
Dean Christopher Callahan of ASU’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication announced that Rose was being stripped of a 2015 award given to the broadcaster. Callahan told the Associated Press that the mounting accusations surrounding Rose were just too “egregious” to ignore.
