Thom Brennaman Starts Rebuilding Broadcasting Career With New Job After Gay Slur Controversy

Broadcaster Thom Brennaman, who resigned from his job as the Cincinnati Reds play-by-play man after he dropped a hot mic gay slur during a game in Kansas City, is officially rebuilding his career. He will now call games in Puerto Rico.

According to, Brennaman was hired by the Roberto Clemente League to provide play-by-play. The league consists of five teams featuring players such as Francisco LindorEdwin Diaz and Christian Vazquez. Brennaman will reportedly work for a streaming service provider,  PrestoSports, to call games that reside behind a paywall. 

“My family and I have decided that I am going to step away from my role as the television voice of the Cincinnati Reds,” Brennaman said in September. “I would like to thank the Reds, Reds fans and the LGBTQ Community for the incredible support and grace they have shown my family and me.“

It’ll cost you $10 to watch one Brennaman-called game, or $70 for an annual pass.

  1. Good luck Thom. If only you were dark skinned and said it from the bench and settled out of court on a rape rap you could have two jersey numbers retired and celebrated in life and unfortunately death. Bask everyday in that white priv. braw.
