Giovanni Cianci, music producer of “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” since 2017, has been let go from the company after a woman accused him of sexual misconduct in a 2010 incident, Variety has learned.
“Gio is no longer employed by the show,” says a source with knowledge of the situation. Variety has reached out to Cianci and the show’s network, CBSViacom, for comment.
His exit follows a social media post from musician Paige Stark, who also spoke with Variety about the matter, alleging that an incident took place while Cianci was working at Lookout Management, where he was employed from 2002 through 2014. He had expressed interest in her band and the two met during the CMJ Music Marathon conference in 2010. She says he made advances toward her when the two were alone in an elevator, attempted to kiss her and when she resisted, pinned her against the wall. Stark said his aggressive behavior did not stop after she left the elevator and he continued to follow her and a bandmate to a bar, where a male friend she had called met them and eventually forcefully convinced Cianci to leave. She said he continued to “harass” her on Facebook and via text for several months.
A friend of Stark’s who spoke to her at the time of the alleged incident, corroborated that the account provided on Instagram was what Stark described shortly after the 2010 incident.
Stark says she kept quiet for nearly a decade because she was “too scared to come forward publicly.” She said in 2017 she emailed Cianci’s former boss at Lookout — and included a screen shot of the email in her Instagram post — but received no reply.
Soon after the Instagram post, lawyers from ViacomCBS reached out to Stark directly for her account, according to a source, emphasizing that the company takes such matters very seriously.
Cianci also worked as a manager at the Creed Company and his own Bassline Management before joining Colbert in 2017. He was featured in Variety‘s “Who’s Who in TV Music Booking” in 2018.

Why an ‘active’ approach to risk modelling is key to navigating markets today
Whether investors are aiming for a cautious approach or a riskier investment profile with the potential for higher returns, Architas’ Blended Fund range is designed to match a range of investor risk appetites. And like many asset managers, Architas predominantly uses two approaches to define asset allocation within the five risk bands used in the Blended Range – strategic and tactical.
Whilst risk model provider EValue’s quantitative approach to asset allocation takes into account the long-term performance of different asset classes and the likely future performance given current valuations, along with long-term measures of volatility and correlations with other asset classes. Yet as with most systems of its kinds, EValue focuses on the long term; it is unable to analyse short-term market movements and fluctuations. So whilst it would have seen that in Q1 2020 markets fell by a record percentage before rebounding, it will not be able to factor in the cost of the coronavirus and lockdown and its impact on markets. Similarly, it is not able to consider ongoing Brexit woes, geo-political trade wars or the outcome of the US election in 2020.
