Jeremy Roenick: NHL analyst not returning to NBC following suspension

Former NHL player and analyst Jeremy Roenick announced that he will no longer work for NBC Sports following his suspension.

“I’m very disappointed and angry today, I will not be returning to NBC,” Roenick said in a video on Twitter. “Though disappointed, I’m also grateful that I’ve had the opportunity to share my love, my passion, my knowledge of the game with millions of people, millions of fans. And for that, I thank you.” 

Roenick was suspended indefinitely by NBC Sports in December for inappropriate comments made about his co-workers. On the Spittin’ Chiclets podcast, Roenick discussed a vacation to Portugal with his wife and broadcaster Kathryn Tappen and made repeated references to Tappen’s appearance, joking about the possibility of the three of them having sex together.
