ESPN Lays Off 150 Employees Just In Time For The Holidays



ESPN laid off another 150 employees today, just in time for the Holidays.  Here is the email that their pencil dick leader sent out:

"Today we are informing approximately 150 people at ESPN that their jobs are being eliminated. We appreciate their contributions, and will assist them as much as possible in this difficult moment with severance, a 2017 bonus, the continuation of health benefits and outplacement services. They will also appreciate your support. The majority of the jobs eliminated are in studio production, digital content, and technology and they generally reflect decisions to do less in certain instances and re-direct resources. We will continue to invest in ways which will best position us to serve the modern sports fan and support the success of our business. John"

Happy Holidays from ESPN...
