Liberal ESPN Continues to Freefall – Some Huge Layoffs

Today is a dark day at ESPN. Liberal ESPN continues to freefall as there were around 100 layoffs that took place today. Those who were laid off were notified early Wednesday. Many familiar contributors like Brett McMurphy, Trent Dilfer, Danny Kanell, Ed Werder, Len Elmore and Jayson Stark.

ESPN President John Skipper put out a memo that states the new talent lineup will be announced soon.

Per Fox News:

“Dynamic change demands an increased focus on versatility and value, and as a result, we have been engaged in the challenging process of determining the talent—anchors, analysts, reporters, writers and those who handle play-by-play—necessary to meet those demands,” Skipper wrote to employees. “We will implement changes in our talent lineup this week. A limited number of other positions will also be affected and a handful of new jobs will be posted to fill various needs.

“These decisions impact talented people who have done great work for our company. I would like to thank all of them for their efforts and their many contributions to ESPN.”

ESPN also outlined their new network strategy with a pst on its media website. This was published on Wednesday. There is going to be an increased focus on the ESPN App along with a “multi-screen approach around big events.”

“On the horizon is more live news video and enhanced video and audio streaming,” the release said.

ESPN also plans on bolstering their presence online.

“Our goal continues to be to maximize our unparalleled scale in every medium with storytelling that stands out and makes a difference. We are well-equipped to thrive going forward by embracing these themes.”

So while ESPN continues to trend downward, they will be working on their mobile app and dumping a lot of their longest tenured employees. If you have followed our website over the past year, it was pretty easy that ESPN has dug their own grave.
