Statement Issued by Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney Regarding On-Air Incident During NBC Sports Chicago’s Cubs Game Broadcast:
We are currently investigating an incident that occurred during the Cubs’ May 7 broadcast on NBC Sports Chicago while reporter Doug Glanville was on the air. An individual seated behind Mr. Glanville used what appears to be an offensive hand gesture that is associated with racism.
Such ignorant and repulsive behavior is not tolerated at Wrigley Field. We are reviewing the incident thoroughly because no one should be subjected to this type of offensive behavior.
Any derogatory conduct should be reported immediately to our ballpark staff. Any individual behaving in this manner will not only be removed fromthe ballpark, but will be permanently banned from Wrigley Field.
