The world wide leader in sports is set to go through another round of layoffs according report:
For the second time in three years, it looks like ESPN will undergo significant layoffs. But unlike the purge in 2015, which primarily affected workers behind the scenes, faces that appear in front of the camera will likely be casualties this time around.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch, ESPN management has been ordered to trim tens of millions of salary from its payroll over the next four months. The company will reportedly buyout contracts in order to fulfill the mandate.
Hopefully these cuts don’t effect guys like Bruschi and Reiss, anyone else I could care less about.
Plain and simple, people don’t watch ESPN to get their sports news anymore, there are so many outlets out there now on tv and online to get your sports news. No one cares about what LeBron are for breakfast. Give me unbiased news coverage. That’s all we ask for.
If they spent more time reporting on actual sports, news and highlights instead of injecting social and political commentary on a regular basis, they would probably still be successful. We look to sports to get away from all the BS. That being said, as a Patriots fan, nothing brings a smile to my face more than seeing ESPN fail.
