Women in Chicago radio call out ‘toxic and sexist’ culture in male-dominated industry

The uproar over Ferguson began after Cynthia DeNicolo, a former longtime assistant producer on his show, sued the radio host in May, alleging he coerced her into a sexual relationship and harassed her after it ended. His lawyers have denied those allegations. McGurren later alleged in court filings she was “mentally and verbally abused, harassed, put into tears, yelled at, belittled, ignored, mocked” by Ferguson. Both McGurren and DeNicolo each have filed individual defamation suits against the station owner, Hubbard Radio Chicago, and two other women filed legal statements in support of those claims.
