NBC News chairman Andy Lack is being accused of overlooking complaints of sexual misconduct made during his tenure as chairman and CEO of Sony BMG Music Entertainment.

During his tenure, according to a new Daily Beast report, the company discovered that music executive Charlie Walk had sent inappropriate messages of a sexual nature to female colleagues.

“Soon after finding the messages, executives said, they repeatedly implored Lack to address Walk’s sexual harassment,” according to the report. “Each time, Lack declined to act.”

Pam Kaye, who claimed misconduct by Walk while working with him at Columbia Records, told the publication that Lack is “part of the problem if he knew it.”

In the report, Lack is accused of turning a blind eye to sexual misconduct throughout his lengthy career in media, which includes two stints running NBC News.
