Harold Reynolds Saga Part 2

Below is an interesting blurb from regarding Harold Reynolds and his future.

" has learned that Harold Reynolds, who was fired last week by ESPN as one of its major league analysts for alleged sexual misconduct and told a newspaper that he's fielding several other job offers, will not be joining one of baseball's other national broadcasters, Fox Sports or Turner Sports, any time soon.

'We are very happy with our current stable of MLB broadcasters,' said Dan Bell, vice president of communications for Fox Sports. Turner Sports also says it has no interest now. 'We respect Harold Reynolds' baseball knowledge and his quality of work as an analyst,' said Turner Sports executive producer Jeff Behnke. 'At this point it is way too early for us to look at talent hires for the 2007 season and our playoffs package.'"

Something just doesn't add up with this whole situation. People in the broadcast community must know something the average viewer has not been told. He worked at ESPN for 11 years. Like him or hate him, you have to be doing something right to be on the station for that many years. Reynolds had also worked at a commentator for the Little League World Series. ABC would not let anyone work on that telecast who might have a questionable background. Um..let me take that back, hasn't Marv Albert worked for ABC?

It will be interesting once we find out what is really going on with this situation.

Harold Reynold was fired for sexual harassment after inappropriately "hugging" a female coworker...apparently Harold is quite the player, despite having a wife & kid at home.

Thanks for the response. What I still don't understand though is that other on air talent at ESPN have been busted in the past for the same type of behavior. In all the other cases, the person was suspended, not fired.

All I have to say is...he's done it more than once...
