Jian Ghomeshi is a well-known Canadian radio host, musician and author. Formerly the lead singer of the band Moxy Fruvous, which gained some prominence in the early 90s, Ghomeshi went on to co-found and host the popular Q radio show on CBC. In October 2014, Ghomeshi and the CBC parted ways. The broadcaster issued a statement indicating that information it had received precluded the CBC from continuing the relationship with Ghomesh. Ghomeshi released his own statement, saying CBC cut ties with him over concerns about details of his sex life becoming public.
