ESPN – not a tall order when cutting costs

Colin Cowherd

ESPN announced yesterday (this article was originally published last week in my newsletter) that colorful radio personality Colin Cowherd who’s been at the network for a decade won’t be returning.

It’s the 3rd big personality that has parted ways with the network in the last 2 months. Bill Simmons was dropped in May. Keith Olbermann more recently.

What’s behind all these moves by boss John Skipper? Cost cuts.

See his commentary in Forbes.

Update: Jackson published this weeks before the infamous conference call that caused its stock to drop 10 percent.
