Chicago Cubs Announcer Admits That, Yes, Their Cameramen Are Kinda Pervs

Chicago’s WGN has been the nation’s broadcast home of the Chicago Cubs since 1948. Given the Cubs have not won a pennant in that time, the highlight of most WGN broadcasts tends to be “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” and its accompanying “Budweiser Fan Cam” montage.

Indeed, the Fan Cam has developed its own following, including a Facebook page. Eagle-eyed viewers would note the provenance of young, attractive women in the Fam Cam montages, something finally noted Saturday night during the Cubs’ game in Pittsburgh by Dave Campbell (subbing for Bob Brenly, who was watching his son Michael play for the Cubs’ Daytona Beach minor league affiliate that evening):

Far more shocking than the observation that WGN camera operators are pervy: it was a sellout game in PNC Park!

    This admission is not surprising, nor should it be.  The late WGN producer Arne Harris made it a tradition to pan the cameras to the hot looking chicks in the Wrigley stands for a long time.  Harry Caray always got a kick out of seeing the “boob” shots!!

    There were like 10 ugly people for every semi good looking one in that video.

    Since when did saying that they “like pretty girls” imply that they’re perverts? What has happened to this country?

    “Provenance?”  Do you mean “predominance?”

  • Editor

    he definitely mean prominence

  • Freditor

    possibly even prevalence
