Sportsnet Analyst Gregg Zaun Fired For 'Inappropriate Behavior'

Toronto Blue Jays television analyst Gregg Zaun has been fired Thursday from Sportsnet for “inappropriate behavior and comments” toward female employees

This type of behavior completely contradicts our standards and our core values.

Gregg Zaun is just the latest to have it happen to him after he was sacked from his position at Rogers Sportsnet on Thursday, following multiple allegations of inappropriate workplace conduct.

"We believe in a professional workplace", the statement continued, "where all employees feel comfortable and respected".

"We will take every measure to protect their privacy", Brace said. He began working as a full-time analyst with Sportsnet after his retirement in 2011.

Zaun most notably spent five seasons with the Blue Jays during his 16 year Major League Baseball career. He was on the Florida Marlins' World Series champion team in 1997.

Sportsnet reported that there were no allegations of physical or sexual harassment.

Zaun did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Longtime co-host Jamie Campbell told The Canadian Press in an email that he had no comment.

Back in December 2012, Zaun took to Twitter to criticize young, bar-going women of Toronto.

Zaun ruffled the feathers of some Blue Jays players over the years when he criticized their play.

He said the decision was made to terminate Zaun after an investigation. Zaun denied that he ever bought PED's. The Abbotsford News reached out to organizers of that event, who stated that they will decide how to proceed over the next few days as more details unfold.
