NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The CBS investigation into former CEO Les Moonves' sexual harassment allegations "is nearing an end," the company's president and acting CEO Joseph Ianniello said in a memo to employees Thursday.

News of the investigation's conclusion comes the same week that The New York Times reported that additional allegations against the disgraced studio exec were being investigated. 

“It’s frustrating that confidential information from the ongoing investigation made its way to the public before management and the board knew about it –  and importantly, before we could communicate with all of you," reads the memo, according to Variety. "And while we still don’t yet know the actual results, I do understand that the investigation is nearing an end." 

Ianniello continues, “We in management, as well as our board members, understand that these stories are very disconcerting. At the same time, we should all be proud that we’ve been able to maintain our focus, and continue to perform at a high level, no matter the circumstances. We will continue to communicate as information comes in. I know we are all anxious to put this chapter behind us. In the meantime, thank you for your commitment to this outstanding Company and know we’re all in this together.”
