ESPN is going to look a whole lot different real soon. The company is set to lay off some big names in the near future.
SI.com has reported that the network will face a major round of lay offs between now and June as part of a “significant cost-cutting” measure aimed at cutting tens of millions from there payroll.
There is not a list of who is set to be let go, but it is being reported that nobody is safe.
ESPN had made some cuts back in 2015 when it cut nearly 300 behind the scenes employees. It is being said that there will be no more cuts in any of those positions.
The company released a statement saying, “Inevitably that has consequences for how we utilize our talent. We are confident that ESPN will continue to have a roster of talent that is unequaled in sports.”
