Ellen DeGeneres will continue hosting her talk show for another season, amid an investigation into alleged workplace issues on the programme.
The Independent has contacted DeGeneres’s team for more information.
The Ellen DeGeneres Show is currently the subject of an investigation into allegations that it is a toxic work environment.
Variety first reported about the probe last month, writing that an in-house employee relations group as well as a third-party firm had been retained to conduct interviews with current and former employees.
A source told NBC News shortly afterwards that DeGeneres isn’t a subject of the probe, stating: “It is not about her at all.”
The news that DeGeneres will remain as host for another season comes amid speculation that she might be replaced by another anchor.
She has hosted the high-profile talk show since September 2003.
DeGeneres addressed the allegation in a memo to staff last month, writing, according to Today: “On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness — no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect.
“Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.”
WarnerMedia told Today in a statement at the time: “Warner Bros and Ellen DeGeneres take the recent allegations around the show’s workplace culture very seriously. We hoped to determine the validity and extent of publicly reported allegations and to understand the full breadth of the show’s day-to-day culture.”
