Ex-Letterman writer claims hostile environment

Ex-Letterman writer claims hostile environment

A former writer for David Letterman says she quit his NBC show because of alleged sexual favoritism and a hostile work environment.
Nell Scovell, writing for Vanity Fair online Tuesday, said Letterman didn't "hit on her" during her stint with NBC's "Late Night with David Letterman."
But Scovell writes that he paid extra attention to her and was rumored to be involved in sexual relationships with other female staffers.
Scovell says she believes those women benefited professionally. But Scovell, who went on to a successful writing career, said she doesn't want to file a lawsuit.
Letterman, who moved to CBS in 1993, has admitted to workplace affairs that led to an alleged blackmail plot.
Letterman and Scovell did not immediately return requests for comment.
