Melinda Fager is the wife of disgraced TV producer, Jeff Fager –who until recently served as the executive producer of ’60 Minuties.’
Melinda’s husband has been fired from the top job following a menacing text he sent to CBS reporter, Jericka Duncan. According to reports, Duncan was merely reaching out to Fager for comment after he and Ronan Farrow –were the subjects of a recent investigation into sexual misconduct at CBS.
His termination has been labeled as unfair by Fager since he says he was only asking Duncan to be fair while covering the story. He had been for CBS for 36-years.
But perhaps 64-year-old Jeff has other things to worry about. According to a Times story, Fager had “engaged in some type of sexually inappropriate conduct” toward a female CBS employee who alleged in 2009 he had groped her.
