    Thom Brennaman -Taking Ownership of Ignorance

    On this episode, we have Thom Brennaman a long-time sportscaster who fell into a massive controversy in 2020 when a hot mic caught him saying a slur. This hot mic moment lead to his dismissal as a Cincinnati Reds sportscaster and his resignation from Fox Sports. Since then Thom has met and worked with various LGBT+ organizations and individuals to le arn from his mistakes and grow as a person. 
    Thom has been working to amend his wrongs and get back into what he knows best Sportscasting. You can currently find Thom broadcasting on Chatterbox Sports broadcasting High School sports in Cincinnati and on his new show “Off the Bench with Thom Brennaman presented by UDF” which streams live daily on Chatterbox Sports Youtube.
    We know this episode may be viewed as controversial by some, but we believe everyone deserves a chance at redemption. People make mistakes and learn from those mistakes and we believe that Thom has worked to better himself and those affected by his words since that moment.

We all know that the journey to success is never easy.

It can be hard to find the motivation to keep going when you're struggling. You feel like you're the only one going through this and that no one understands what you're going through.
