The Ringer Bill Simmons

Back in December, The Ringer president Eric Weinberger was indefinitely suspended as a result of sexual harassment allegations dating back to his time at NFL Network. Three months later, The Ringer announced that Weinberger has been let go, according to a statement provided by The Hollywood Reporter.

“On March 5, The Ringer and Eric Weinberger mutually agreed to part ways and he’s no longer with the company,” a spokesman said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

Weinberger initially joined The Ringer in November of 2015. Many of the people named in the initial lawsuit, including NFL Network executives Michael Mandt and Dan Dieffenbach and ESPN analysts Eric Davis and Donovan McNabb (who were employed by NFL Network during the time period referred to in the lawsuit), have lost their jobs. There still hasn’t been any word about the employment statuses of current NFL Network analysts Heath Evans, Marshall Faulk, and Ike Taylor, who were all suspended by NFL Network when the lawsuit became public.

There’s been no word as to who Weinberger’s replacement at The Ringer will be.
