Toronto Blue Jays television analyst Gregg Zaun was fired Thursday from Sportsnet for alleged “inappropriate behavior and comments” toward female employees.
Rick Brace, the president of Rogers Media, which operates Sportsnet, said in a statement Thursday the company was terminating Zaun’s contract immediately.
Brace wrote in the statement that the company received multiple complaints from female co-workers who accused Zaun of inappropriate behavior. Brace said after an investigation, the company decided to terminate Zaun’s contract.
“This type of behavior completely contradicts our standards and our core values,” Brace’s statement continued. “We believe in a professional workplace where all employees feel comfortable and respected. We are grateful to our employees who spoke with us and we will take every measure to protect their privacy.”
