Professional Career

As executive producer of Good Morning America, she came up with the idea to team Diane Sawyer with Charlie Gibson to launch true 24/7 news at ABC. At GMA , she added nearly a million viewers and greatly boosted income revenue by keeping a unique finger on the pulse of the public and creating big newsmaking events.

She broadcast a 2-hour live special on school shootings from the White House with Bill and Hillary Clinton five weeks after Columbine. She was the first to originate a live tv show from the Vatican, commemorating the Pope’s 25th anniversary of his leadership; from the Pentagon, one year after 9/11 to reopen the wing destroyed by the hijackers; and from the Tower of London on the 50th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne. For the day to day shows, Ross super-charged the pacing, format, graphics, and music along with creating award-winning promotion and marketing campaigns.

Her morning trajectory continued even after she became executive producer of PrimeTime Llve and she was credited with driving GMA within 40,000 viewers of Today.At ABC, Ross also executive produced David Blaine’s Drowned Alive, a week-long live event in Lincoln Center which ended with the successful live 2-hour televised ABC entertainment special which in the last half hour beat the season finale of “24,” one of toughest nights of the season.In late 2007, CBS News hired Ross as senior executive producer to relaunch CBS News’ Early Show, at which time she changed the architecture of the studio, the set, music, graphics, editorial content, pacing of the show and more.

During her 23-week tenure, she increased the key demographics of the show by 22%, adding 195,000 new viewers (25-54). This, during a news cycle where every other daily network news broadcast was down year to year. CBS’ Evening News with Katie Couric, sharing the same network resources, saw a demo loss of 340,000 viewers in those same weeks.

Ross’ directing debut was in 2010: a one-hour PBS concert Special, “4TROOPS: Live From the Intrepid” for Sony Masterworks. 4TROOPS, all combat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, came together as performers to raise money for veterans in need and awareness of the sacrifices of all troops and their families.On January 11, 2011, Ross launched daily Xpress, a news and pop culture blog with the dictum, “we put our name to it,” her personal note to anonymous bloggers whom she calls “anonymouses.”

Chris Cuomo is accused of sexual harassment

CNN’s Chris Cuomo has been accused of sexual harassment by his former ABC boss who claims he squeezed her buttock upon greeting her in a bar – before he later apologized saying he was ‘ashamed’ of his behavior. Shelley Ross, former executive producer at ABC and CBS, penned an op ed for the New York Times detailing the alleged incident at a going-away party for an ABC colleague back in 2005.

Ross, who has spoken out in the past about being sexually harassed by serial predator Roger Ailes, said Cuomo gave her a ‘bear hug’ in the bar and grabbed and squeezed her buttock. Cuomo, whose brother Andrew Cuomo resigned as governor of New York over a flurry of sexual harassment allegations last month, later sent her an email apologizing for his actions, she said.

Ross added that she did not believe his actions were ‘sexual in nature’ but rather a ‘form of sexual harassment’ where he attempted to ‘diminish and belittle his female former boss.’  ‘I never thought that Mr. Cuomo’s behavior was sexual in nature,’ she wrote. ‘Whether he understood it at the time or not, his form of sexual harassment was a hostile act meant to diminish and belittle his female former boss in front of the staff.’

The CNN anchor has not denied the allegations, telling the Times on Thursday ‘it happened 16 years ago’ and ‘was not sexual in nature.”As Shelley acknowledges, our interaction was not sexual in nature. It happened 16 years ago in a public setting when she was a top executive at ABC,’ he said.’I apologized to her then, and I meant it.’
