6:50 p.m.

A former Associated Press executive who recently lost his job as National Public Radio newsroom chief following sexual-harassment reports says he was “on one occasion” asked by AP’s human resources department about an email exchange with a non-editorial staff member.

Michael Oreskes said Monday the exchange was “innocent.” He says he and the staff member discussed his father’s death and the colleges they attended.

The AP says it received a complaint of “unwelcome and inappropriate verbal communication” by Oreskes.

AP spokeswoman Lauren Easton says the complaint did not involve sexual activity or unwelcome touching and was investigated and acted upon. She says the complaint was the only one the AP received about Oreskes, who was vice president and a senior managing editor from 2008 to 2015.

Some NPR employees have reported inappropriate conversations with Oreskes.

The Associated Press says it received one complaint of “unwelcome and inappropriate verbal communication” by former executive Michael Oreskes, who lost his job as National Public Radio newsroom chief following sexual harassment reports.

AP spokeswoman Lauren Easton says the complaint was investigated and acted upon. She says it did not involve sexual activity or unwelcome touching. Oreskes was vice president and a senior managing editor at the AP from 2008 to 2015.

Easton says the complaint was made by an employee while Oreskes worked at the AP and was the only one the news cooperative has received about him.

Oreskes says he was questioned about an “innocent” email exchange with a non-editorial staff member.

Two women who spoke to Oreskes about job prospects when he worked at The New York Times said he had suddenly kissed them. Some NPR employees had reported inappropriate conversations with him.
