TV academy reviews Cosby’s Hall of Fame honor
Los Angeles — The TV academy said it is reviewing Bill Cosby’s inclusion in the academy’s Hall of Fame following his sexual assault conviction.
Cosby’s spokesman didn’t immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment.
Although the academy hasn’t decided whether he’ll remain in the Hall of Fame, Cosby’s name had previously been removed a list of Hall of Fame honorees on the academy’s website.
A bust of Cosby no longer will be part of a rotating Walk of Fame exhibit honoring TV heavyweights at the academy’s Los Angeles headquarters, an academy spokesman said.
Last week, jurors in Pennsylvania convicted Cosby of drugging and molesting a Temple University employee in 2004. He awaits sentencing.
