Last night, I went to tape an episode of Comcast Sports Net’s “Blog Show” with Jamie Mottram and Dan Steinberg. And, as sometimes happens on a TV set, there were some minor creative differences, and I had a very small incident in the heat of the moment where I let my temper get the best of me. These things happen, even to the seasoned broadcasters such as myself. I deeply regret it. While I wish that some of the staff at Comcast had been a bit more diligent in their work, it was no excuse for me to act that way I acted.
This off-air video is now nearly a day old and does not reflect my typical workplace demeanor, my relationships with co-workers, nor the vast contributions I have made to Comcast Sports Net during my television career, a career that has spanned well over eight minutes. I have a tremendous connection with sports fans and my body of work should not be judged by a few minutes of unguarded language uttered hours ago. I’m not excusing the language used, and I will be emphasizing to the KSK workforce the importance of using appropriate language in the workplace.
