Gretchen Carlson, Anita Hill Talk Harassment on CNN

CNN has slated a prime time town hall meeting on sexual harassment in the growing wake of accusations by dozens of people against powerful media figures.

The special, Tipping Point: Sexual Harassment in America, will air at 9 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 9.

The town hall will feature Gretchen Carlson, the former Fox News Channel anchor, and Anita Hill, both of whom leveled allegations of harassment against high-profile men.

Also appearing on the show will be #MeToo founder Tarana Burke and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), who is backing harassment-related legislation.

The special will air on CNN, CNN en Español, CNN International, and will be carried by CNN’s SiriusXM Channel 116 and the Westwood One Radio Network and stream live for subs at CNNgo and via mobile apps.
