A top editor at National Public Radio (NPR) has left the network after three journalists filed sexual harassment allegations against him.

David Sweeney, who was NPR’s chief news editor, “is no longer on staff,” acting senior vice president of news Chris Turpin said in a memo to staff.

The exit is the second high-level departure at NPR over sexual harassment allegations over the past month.

Michael Oreskes, the network’s senior vice president of news and editorial director, was forced to resign after two women accused him of forcibly kissing them when he was Washington bureau chief at the New York Times in the 1990s.
