When Dan Patrick left ESPN in 2007, it was a bold move, and one that spurred a lot of discussion. This week, Patrick revealed some new and interesting details to Jimmy Traina of Sports Illustrated on how he felt approaching that move.
Levinsohn was previously the CEO of Sports Illustrated's media side under Maven. Before that, he was publisher and CEO of The Los Angeles Times, but eventually left there after staff protests about his past behavior.
Awful Announcing obtained an April 29 e-mail from The Maven SVP Glenn Nelson linking Texans' writer Patrick Starr to Patrick Colon, a former high school coach and teacher who pled guilty to two counts of improper relations between an educator and a student in 2008. Starr continued to write for SI/The Maven through at least June.
