On this episode, we have Thom Brennaman a long-time sportscaster who fell into a massive controversy in 2020 when a hot mic caught him saying a slur. This hot mic moment lead to his dismissal as a Cincinnati Reds sportscaster and his resignation from Fox Sports. Since then Thom has met and worked with various LGBT+ organizations and individuals to learn from his mistakes and grow as a person.
Thom has been working to amend his wrongs and get back into what he knows best Sportscasting. You can currently find Thom broadcasting on Chatterbox Sports broadcasting High School sports in Cincinnati and on his new show “Off the Bench with Thom Brennaman presented by UDF” which streams live daily on Chatterbox Sports Youtube.
We know this episode may be viewed as controversial by some, but we believe everyone deserves a chance at redemption. People make mistakes and learn from those mistakes and we believe that Thom has worked to better himself and those affected by his words since that moment.
