ESPN to Cut 100 High-Paid On Air Talent This Week

Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN network will cut about 100 staffers this week, reports Bloomberg.

ESPN President John Skipper, in a memo to staff Wednesday, said the network has been determining whom to cut from a pool of higher-paid, on-air talent, which includes anchors, analysts, reporters, writers and those who handle play-by-play. The company has 8,000 global employees.

It should be noted that this is not a business cycle event.

ESPN's slant toward politically correct broadcasts has hurt viewership as well as the availability of online sports clips and news online.



  1. When scores, stats and schedules take a backseat to Caitlin Jenner's body parts, Michael Sam's sexuality, and various, superfluous racial elements to every story, expect your ratings to drop and your network to fail. We're not living under the Obama Regime anymore. Political correctness is becoming a thing of the past. ESPN failed to stay current. Good riddance.

  2. Maybe grown ass men will now stop worshipping low IQ animals who can run fast with a ball when they're not busy fighting dogs.
    Who am I kidding? GO TEAM!
