Statement from Doug Glanville

CHICAGO, ILL. (May 8, 2019) . . . Last evening, while I was providing live commentary during NBC Sports Chicago’s coverage of the Cubs–Marlins game on air, a fan used what appears to have been an offensive hand gesture that can be associated with white supremacy. I was made aware of what happened after the broadcast segment. The Chicago Cubs organization with the cooperation of NBC Sports is investigating this incident.

I applaud the responsiveness of both the Chicago Cubs organization and NBC Sports in investigating this matter. They have reached out to me and are supportive of my role in the broadcast and continue to have a desire to uphold an inclusive environment at Wrigley Field. They have displayed sensitivity as to how the implications of this would affect me as a person of color.

I am supporting their efforts in fully investigating the matter and I will comment further once the investigation has run its course.
