NHL Announcer Fired After Making “Sexist” Comment… Wait till you see it…
Nearly five months after drawing criticism for making a sexist comment while broadcasting a game, Mike Milbury is out at NBC Sports, the network confirmed.
“We are grateful to Mike for all of his contributions to our coverage for 14 years, but he will not be returning to our NHL announce team. We wish him well,” NBC said in a statement.
The move comes in the wake of Milbury’s comment during an Islanders-Capitals playoff game in August, when he referred to women as a distraction for players.
