ABC and American Idol producers are standing by Ryan Seacrest
"We stand by the results of the investigation," ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey says of E!'s third-party investigation into Seacrest for alleged sexual harassment of his former stylist. Cecile Frot-Coutaz, CEO of Idol producer FremantleMedia, adds: "I've known Ryan now for almost 16 years. I stand by him. Obviously it's unfortunate. I'm not privy to the details. He seems to be very robust in his defense. And we'll see where it all goes."
