Jeremy Roenick fired by NBC over comments about coworkers
NHL analyst Jeremy Roenick won’t be back with NBC after inappropriate comments he made late last year about colleagues Kathryn Tappen and Patrick Sharp.
Roenick made the announcement in a Twitter post Wednesday, stating he was “disappointed and angry” and calling the move a “joke” in his caption.

Roenick makes it pretty clear that this was a firing based on his reaction as opposed to a mutual parting of ways.
The analyst was initially suspended indefinitely by NBC over inappropriate sexual comments about both Tappen and Sharp. He was left that way for about a month and a half leading up to his announcement on Wednesday.

Roenick thrives on offering controversial opinions and unfiltered thoughts. It’s unclear if he’ll surface anywhere else, or what network or outlet would be willing to hire him after this incident.
