Two high-ranking CBC executives involved with interviewing employees in connection with the Jian Ghomeshi affair have been put on indefinite leave of absence.

Chris Boyce, executive director of CBC-Radio, and Todd Spencer, executive director of human resources and industrial relations for English services, are on leave "until further notice."    Monique Marcotte will assume Spencer's responsibilities while Cindy Witten will take over for Boyce.

In November, the CBC said that Boyce, Spencer and director of network talk radio Linda Groen had conducted interviews with "Q" employees about Ghomeshi, the show's host.    Since that initial investigation, the CBC commissioned labour lawyer Janice Rubin to conduct an independent probe into how the public broadcaster handled the allegations of sexual violence against Ghomeshi.
