A post-mortem examination found BBC Coventry and Warwickshire reporter, Russell Joslin, died from asphyxiation after obstructing his own airway.
Recording a verdict that Mr Joslin took his own life, coroner Louise Hunt said "multiple factors" appeared to have affected him.
Mr Joslin's father, former Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police, Peter Joslin, said his son was being harassed by a female colleague.
An inquest has today heard claims that a BBC Coventry and Warwickshire reporter, Russell Joslin, who is believed to have killed himself, was subject to 'unwanted advances' by a female colleague.
Former Chief Constable of Warwickshire Police, Peter Joslin, said his son Russell had become more and more concerned about the pressure the woman had put on him.
An inquest in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, heard that Mr Joslin, 50, died in hospital last October, three days after being struck by a bus.
Mr Joslin, a BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio reporter, had previously been treated at a mental health unit in March last year.
The 'Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead' song has missed out on the top slot in the official UK charts despite a campaign to promote the song in the wake of Margaret Thatcher's death.
Instead of playing the 51-second song in full, BBC Radio 1's chart show played a Newsbeat report that included a five-second excerpt.
The BBC has defended its decision to play five seconds of the song Ding, Dong The Witch Is Dead on the Radio 1 chart show this Sunday.
The song has sped up the charts since the death of Baroness Thatcher, propelled by a campaign on Facebook.
The BBC's new Director General Lord Hall said banning the song risked giving what he called a "distasteful campaign behind the song" more publicity.
ITV News Correspondent Juliet Bremner reports:
BBC director general Tony Hall said an outright ban of the Ding Dong record on Radio 1's chart show would have given the track more publicity:
UKIP leader Nigel Farage and Conservative MP Philip Davies, who are both supporters of Margaret Thatcher, told the Daily Telegraph that the BBC should broadcast the song 'Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead'.
The Wizard Of Oz track 'Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead' which has had a surge of popularity in the wake of Baroness Thatcher's death is on course for a place in the top five.
An online campaign has driven sales of the track, and the latest placings released by the Official Charts Company show it had sold 20,000 copies by Wednesday night, when it was a number four.
It had been at number 10 in the Official Charts Update earlier on Wednesday.
The song is currently at number one on the iTunes and Amazon downloads charts but both physical and digital sales are combined to give the Official Chart rankings.
Michele Paduano, Union Representative, has told ITV News Central "there's absolutely no need" for staff to be made redundant.
Journalists working for the BBC in the Midlands have taken strike action in a dispute over compulsory redundancies.
