WXYZ management announced Wednesday they put morning news anchor Malcom Maddox on administrative leave after complaints of sexual harassment surfaced against him.

Maddox doesn't have a published home telephone number and he could not be reached for comment. At that point, the woman claims, she was questioned and told "she should respect her boundaries".

Rideout says after the employee reported the incident to the GM, Maddox was still promoted and that the employee's schedule was moved.

Rideout said the claims of sexual harassment were reported to WXYZ Vice President and General Manager Mike Murri. Sources also tell FOX 2 that Maddox was investigated and suspended in 2015 and when he came back, he was promoted to morning anchor. Murri said the station is developing a timeline for investigating the accusations.

"And I want to tell you these victims, they're ready to speak out", Rideout said.
