“As we prepare to move to the East Coast, I am more committed than ever to ensuring that not only does our team move, but that our new team in New York is made up of the best and kindest in the business,” he said. “Part of that build will include leadership training for all senior staff, including myself.”
Clarkson said there is “always room to grow” and that she wants the show to be “our best version of anything in the business”.
“Especially when it comes to leadership, to ensure that any notion of toxicity is eradicated,” he said.
A spokeswoman for NBC Universal said in a statement that the entertainment corporation is “committed to a safe and respectful work environment.” The statement said workplace complaints are “taken very seriously and to suggest otherwise is untrue”.
“When issues are reported, they are promptly reviewed, investigated and appropriate action is taken,” the statement said.
“The Kelly Clarkson Show strives to build a safe, respectful and fair workplace that nurtures a culture of inclusion and creativity.”
