...at ESPN. Probably won't affect ODU one way or another but for some it might be more interesting than continuing a 12th straight year of daily bashing of ODU's choice in its basketball coach.

Yea, he might be sweating for awhile. The great thing about Jay is he was outstanding as a news anchor in Pittsburgh and can go back to that work in any number of great cities if necessary.

Screw ESPN. They treated Sage Steele like crap because she dared to not with their political agenda. This is ESPN's issue - broadcast the damned game and STFU about politics.

Yeah, NPR had a spot on it. Sports Center shtick was highlights. Today everyone watches high lights instantly on all sorts of streaming platforms, Facebook, Youtube, etc.

They're focusing on personalities and a new streaming service themselves a la carte. They also said "don't feel bad for ESPN. They are still bringing in a ton of cash just not as much as before and they're adjusting" paraphrased.

I too hope Disney stock blows up. =]

There was a time not long ago that I hardly watched much more than sports, and SportsCenter was a must. I watched it every single night before I went to bed.

The reality is that ESPN is terrible now. Between shows where the goal is to see who can yell the loudest, the political nonsense, and the declining quality of SC, I'm pretty much done with it.

Jay Harris and SVP are some of the last few good hosts of SC and they buried SVP in late night which was a colossal mistake. Now they let Stark and other really strong talent go? Crazy.
