Author Nicki Egan Discusses CHASING COSBY on Coast to Coast
First hour guest, former People magazine writer Nicki Weisensee Egan was the first reporter to dig into the Bill Cosby story when Andrea Constand went to the police in 2005 - a decade before it was on anyone else's radar. She spoke about her investigation into the case and what she uncovered. As early as 2000 a 19-year-old woman in New York had gone to police to file a complaint against Cosby, Egan reported. "He had a well-oiled machine in place to handle [sexual assault allegations]," she said. According to Egan, Cosby could have an unflattering story killed with the promise of exclusive access for the media.
She credited Hannibal Buress' stand-up routine (which called out Cosby's behavior), as well as social media for making the story go viral. "A lot of people in Hollywood knew he was doing this," Egan revealed, noting Quincy Jones once even admitted he told Cosby to stop drugging women. CLICK FOR MORE
