The Worldwide Leader in Sports has parted ways with an ESPN Radio host in Syracuse.
ESPN Radio Syracuse personality Brent Axe has reportedly been fired for a controversial reason. Axe was reportedly “too negative” about the Orange.
“I had a problem with the content of the show,” Galaxy president and CEO Ed Levine said. “I’m an SU fan. I’m sorry, but I bleed Orange. I’m not going to apologize for that, and I think a fair reading of the Orange is appropriate. I understand (Galaxy has) a business relationship (with Syracuse), that Coach (Jim) Boeheim and I are personal friends and he’s an investor in my company.
“I understand and acknowledge all of that. We’ve called it pretty fair, and I would argue we’ve been tough on SU when the on-field or off-field events warrant it. I just think over the past six months it took a different tone and became overly dark and negative. I don’t think that’s what Syracuse fans want to hear.”
His firing ends his tenure that started back in 2014.
The Syracuse Orange finished 9th in the ACC with a 17-15 record.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
