DETROIT (AP) -

The parent company of Detroit television station WXYZ says anchor Malcom Maddox is returning to work following an investigation into allegations that the station ignored sexual harassment complaints against him.

The E.W. Scripps Co. says it completed an investigation into the allegations and found no basis for additional action against Maddox or others.

The Associated Press left a message at the station Friday seeking comment from Maddox.

WXYZ placed Maddox on administrative leave Dec. 6 after Detroit pastor the Rev. W.J. Rideout alleged the station ignored complaints made by employees against Maddox.

Scripps says that in 2015 the company determined that Maddox had engaged in inappropriate communications with coworkers that didn't conform to company policy. Scripps says that at that time Maddox received corrective action, including a two-week unpaid suspension.
