Breaking: New statement from Steve McPherson’s attorney

With rumors flowing around town that a specific work-related event (said to possibly be vitriolic emails) forced Steve McPherson's exit from ABC yesterday, McPherson's attorney, Tom Hoberman, just released this statement:

"Upon Steve McPherson returning to work from his vacation on Monday, he made a voluntary
decision to resign and ABC accepted his resignation.

It is not uncommon for high level executives to be the subject of gossip and innuendo.
That would includes rumors of internal situations which can easily be misinterpreted or
misrepresented. Seems like it goes with the territory, and there is nothing further to discuss."
