ESPN Trims 100


As expected Bristol based ESPN laid off 100 people Wednesday in an effort to cut costs. As one Tweet put it: “About 50 names you will recognize and about 50 you may not.” In other words, on-air talent was hit just as hard as off-air talent.

Among the confirmed casualties: Ed Werder, Pierre LeBrun, Scott Burnside, Joe McDonald, Austin Ward and Dana O’Neil.
