Leonard Lopate and Johnathan Schwartz are the latest media figures swept up in the national reckoning over sexual harassment.

WNYC radio hosts, Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz have been placed on leave effective immediately following the launch of an investigation into allegations of inappropriate conduct.

The station did not detail the accusations against the pair. "New York Public Radio takes these kinds of allegations very seriously and is reviewing these matters promptly", she added.

Lopate, a more than 30-year veteran of the station, has hosted "The Leonard Lopate Show", a cultural and public-affairs series airing weekdays at noon. Schwartz hosts weekend shows on the station and has hosted for WNYC since 1999. Last week, famed "A Prairie Home Companion" host Garrison Keillor was let go from Minnesota Public Radio for the same reason.

Schwartz is the host of The Jonathan Channel as well as several hours of programming on Saturday and Sunday.

John Hockenberry, who formerly hosted the WNYC program The Takeaway, has recently been accused of sexual harassment. The article's author, Suki Kim, said she reported her experiences working with Hockenberry to Walker in February, long before the tidal wave of sexual harassment stories, starting with Harvey Weinstein, began.

The 61-year-old Emmy victor issued a statement expressing remorse.

WNYC reporter Ilya Marritz said on the air that he had spoken with women who made complaints about both hosts.
