Marianne Combs posted her resignation on Twitter. She did not name the man, who she said is an announcer on the Adult Alternative music service "The Current."

Combs said in the letter she gathered testimony from eight women who say that he sexually manipulated and psychologically abused them.

MPR President Duchesne Drew says editors decided the story was not ready to run because it does not meet the company’s journalistic standards.
