Sam Ponder Successfully Gets ESPN To Cancel Barstool Van Talk

ESPN President John Skipper announced on Monday afternoon that Barstool Van Talk was being canceled after just one episode.

Because according to Skipper, ESPN was unable to distance itself from the Barstool site and its content.



It appears as if Sam Ponder's Twitter war with the Barstool Sports and quest to end the show was successful.

Ponder dug up a three year old post written about her and took to Twitter the day before Barstool Van Talk was to air on ESPN.

Canceling the show is a huge miscalculation on ESPN's part.  Barstool is on the rise and dominates the key demographic.  ESPN needs those eyeballs.

If FOX Sports had any hopes of gaining some ground on ESPN they would team up with Barstool as soon as humanly possible.
