Tri-Valley TV exec faces harassment suits

Glenn Davis (pictured) — the executive director of the community television station that serves Dublin, San Ramon, Livermore and Pleasanton — has been placed on an indefinite leave of absence after he was sued a second time for sexually harassing a female employee, the Pleasanton Tri-Valley Herald reports. In the most recent lawsuit, producer Misty Ty claims Davis enticed her into an editing room and engaged in unwanted contact, which included kissing her. In the first suit, former news director Linda Elliott says Davis was flirtatious and called her the "blond bombshell." The community access station, known as TV30, also has money problems. The city councils in the four cities served by TV30 each put up $65,000 last year to bail the station out of its financial problems, and now the mayors of those cities control the station's board, according to the Tri-Valley Herald.
