Goodbye tweets from the 100+ fired at ESPN

posted by Josie Lane - 

ESPN has been struggling in recent years as more than 10 million subscribers to the sports network "cut the cord" in favor of apps and other online sources for their sports news.

More than 300, mostly behind-the-scenes individuals were given their pink slips in 2015.

However, yesterday, more recognizable faces were taken off of the network as a mass layoff of over 100 tv and radio personalities were let go.

Among those were: "Sports Center" anchor Jay Crawford, college basketball analyst Len Elmore, Tennessee Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky and others.

ESPN did not post an official list of those terminated but Twitter was soon filled with goodbyes from employees as they were notified. 

My time with ESPN comes to a close today as I join the sidelines with so many other talented people at the company. It was a phenomenal 4 1/2 years of learning from and working with some of the very best in sports television and I will be forever grateful and appreciative of every day I was there.
