scrapping the Rolling Stone 50th Anniversary Show.
Announced in May at the networks upfront presentation, the
special was set to be a three-hour exploration into the impact
Rolling Stone had on pop culture, music and politics throughout
the past five decades. It promised live performances and stars
as well in a big spectacle. But ABC made the abrupt decision to
cancel the special in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations
against the rock n' roll magazine's founder, Jann Wenner.

David Weir, an investigative reporter who wrote for Rolling

Weir was one of several former Bay Area colleagues of Wenner who
expressed amazement at a front-page Wall Street Journal story
Friday confirming that the magazine mogul has left his wife and
co-owner of his media empire, Jane, for a man.
"And not just any man," the New York Post had reported on Feb.
19, but "Matt Nye, a boyish, 28-year-old former male model" who
works in the men's design department at Calvin Klein.
