C-SPAN announced this week that it is bringing back host Steve Scully who was placed on administrative leave after lying that his Twitter account was hacked.
The story: C-SPAN said that Scully will return to his job this week as a producer and to his role on C-SPAN Radio’s “Washington Today” and his podcast series “The Weekly.”
“Steve Scully, who was placed on administrative leave in mid-October for Twitter-related controversies in conjunction with the second presidential debate, is returning to duty at C-SPAN beginning this week,” C-SPAN said in a statement.
“No date has been set for his return to C-SPAN’s roster of on-air television hosts,” the statement continued. “We view October’s events as a singular episode in an otherwise successful 30-year C-SPAN career. And while it was appropriate in October for Steve to be immediately relieved of his duties leading our 2020 election coverage, we reiterate our belief that now, having completed a three-month administrative leave, he can continue to contribute to CSPAN’s mission.”
