The first thing you’re taught when you get into broadcasting is to always be careful whenever a microphone is around. You just never know who many be listening or recording what you’re saying. Chris Berman and John Kruk apparently forgot that lesson.
Berman and Kruk were victims of a “hot mic” Monday during ESPN’s broadcast of the Home Run Derby and could be heard debating whether or not they would stand during the Stand Up 2 Cancer corporate sponsor/charity portion of the event.
Once they decided they needed to get up, they wanted to at least make sure their efforts were caught on camera. I mean what’s the point of doing charity work if you’re not at least getting some public recognition for it, right?
