Bill Kurtis Smears Herman Cain Accuser Sharon Bialek, a Former CBS Employee, on Chicago Radio

Citing what he heard “in the elevator at work,” legendary WBBM anchor Bill Kurtis discredited Herman Cain accuser Sharon Bialek in a conversation last week on WLS-AM.

Speaking as a guest on WLS’s “The Roe Conn Show,” Kurtis said that Bialek, who worked for CBS in Chicago from 2006-2007, “has a history.”

“There’s a lot more to this story,” Kurtis said of Bialek’s account of sexual harrassment. “I ride in the elevator at work and I hear very quickly a different kind of story.”

“Let’s put Herman and Sharon in the car at the same time,” Kurtis said, “and the roles may even have been reversed, given [her] track record here.” Here’s the audio…

Kurtis had been invited on the show because city officials had declared it “Bill Kurtis Day” in Chicago, honoring the cultural investments he and his longtime partner have made to the community.
