SHOW TRANSCRIPT

AT&T has suspended its sponsorship of USA Gymnastics in the wake of sexual abuse allegations involving former team doctor Larry Nassar.

The company said in a statement it's pulling out of the deal with the organization "until it is re-built and we know that the athletes are in a safe environment."

Late last year, several major companies — including Kellogg's, Hershey's and Under Armour — also decided not to renew their partnerships with USA Gymnastics.

Nassar has been accused of sexually assaulting dozens of women and girls, including Olympic gymnasts Aly RaismanMcKayla MaroneyGabby Douglas and Simone Biles.
