The Washington Post quotes Delta Radio CEO David Fuss as saying he believes David Mueller’s side of the story.
A federal jury determined that Mueller assaulted and battered Swift by grabbing her under her skirt as they posed for a photo. Mueller, who uses the last name “Jackson” on air, still denies that. He began co-hosting the “Jackson and Jonbob” show on Monday.
Mueller’s hiring comes as the #MeToo movement draws attention to sexual assault and harassment.
Fuss says Mueller sounds good on air, but allows that his decision also was “maybe a tiny bit” about publicity.
Neither party has responded to the newspaper’s requests for comment.
