Ryan Lizza back at CNN after sexual misconduct investigation

Ryan Lizza is back on-air.

The political analyst was asked to come back to CNN after the network conducted an investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.

Lizza was suspended in December after The New Yorker terminated his employment for “improper sexual conduct.” However, CNN declared that there was not enough reason to keep him off the air.

“Upon learning of The New Yorker’s decision to sever ties with Ryan Lizza in December, CNN pulled him from future on-air appearances while the network conducted an extensive investigation into the matter,” a CNN spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday.

“Based on the information provided and the findings of the investigation, CNN has found no reason to continue to keep Mr. Lizza off the air.”

Lizza denied the allegations of sexual misconduct saying the incident was a “respectful” relationship with a woman he used to date.

“This decision, which was made hastily and without a full investigation of the relevant facts, was a terrible mistake,” Lizza said in a statement at the time.

A lawyer for the victim of Lizza’s alleged misconduct said in a statement in December that she wanted the TV personality to be held accountable.

“Our client reported Mr. Lizza’s actions to ensure that he would be held accountable and in the hope that by coming forward she would help other potential victims,” the statement read.

Lizza appeared on Thursday’s “CNN Tonight with Don Lemon.”
