Fuji Television Network Inc. said Wednesday it will scrap plans to use Sean McArdle Kawakami, a popular radio and TV personality, as emcee of a major news show slated to begin in April, after he admitted “errors” in his publicized academic background.

Kawakami, also known as “Sean K,” apologized in a message posted online Tuesday about the “gross misunderstanding” he caused over his resume. He said he had never obtained an “M.B.A. from Harvard Business School” or “tertiary education at l’Universite de Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne,” as had been stated in English on his website.
