Well, that was quick. After only a single episode aired, ESPN cancelled Barstool Van Talk.
Dave Portnoy held a video press conference in reaction to the news, where he wondered how ESPN could get in bed with Barstool without realizing what the company was all about.
PFT Commenter and Dan “Big Cat” Katz opened up about the cancellation, revealing the show was intended for a 22-episode run. They admitted they were “embarrassed,” and the situation “fucking sucks.”
As a part of his new sportscasting program at Full Sail University, the Dan Patrick School of Sportscasting, Dan Patrick will feature Bill Simmons, Jeremy Schaap, and Jay Harris as guest instructors.
Jenn Sterger claimed she was sexually harassed multiple times by an ESPN employee she did not name. ESPN released a statement saying there’s no record of the allegations being brought to their attention.
After Sterger’s allegations, tweets from ESPN personalities Sam Ponder and Sarah Spain were unearthed where they criticized her.
According to Mike McCarthy of The Sporting News another round of layoffs could be coming to ESPN before the end of the year.
