Former Steelers RB Jerome Bettis Let Go By ESPN During Layoffs
It seems like it’s been a few days since ESPN has let go of an on-air personality as part of their recent layoffs of analysts, anchors and online writers.
On Sunday, that all changed when former Pittsburgh Steelers RB Jerome Bettis was given his walking papers.
“More bad news out of ESPN: Jerome Bettis is out as an NFL analyst, sources told Sporting News on Sunday.
The Pro Football Hall of Famer lost his gig as part of ESPN’s recent layoff of 100 analysts, anchors and online writers, said sources. Among the big names who have lost their jobs: Trent Dilfer, Ed Werder, Danny Kanell, Jayson Stark, Britt McHenry, Marc Stein, Andy Katz and Jade McCarthy.
ESPN declined to comment on Bettis’ dismissal. Bettis could not be reached for comment.”
Bettis joined ESPN in 2013, appearing on “NFL Live” and “SportsCenter,” as well as ESPN Radio.
