ESPN’s Draft Night Coverage Sponsored By Job Recruiting Website Day After ESPN Layoffs (VIDEO)
Well, this wasn’t awkward at all.
For the past 48 hours, ESPN gave as many as 100 on-air personalities their walking papers after many years of hard work. And reports state, they are not finished yet.
On Thursday, ESPN’s draft night coverage got extremely awkward when people noticed their sponsor for the night—a job search website.

Seems a tad bit cruel that ZipRecruiter of all companies is sponsoring the ESPN Draft show #ESPNLayoffs

I wanna know why ESPN is heavily being sponsored by ZipRecruiter… somethings wrong here.
