Indy Star bars Gregg Doyel from covering Caitlin Clark’s games

The leading sports columnist at the Indianapolis Star can’t cover the biggest sports story in town this summer.

Gregg Doyel, a longtime voice at the newspaper, will not be allowed to cover the Indiana Fever, which drafted Caitlin Clark last month, the Star confirmed Tuesday. The newspaper’s decision followed an awkward moment at Clark’s introductory news conference last month in which Doyel made a heart gesture with his hands, mimicking something Clark has done with her family, and told her he was happy she was in Indianapolis.
