REPORTS: ESPN EASING OUT ICONIC SPORTSCASTER CHRIS BERMAN:

The New York Post noted that Oppenheim did not say that Berman would remain at ESPN, but only that he was not retiring. The Post suggests that the agent’s remarks “carries the whiff of a power struggle at the Worldwide Leader” and that they may “have grown weary of his over-the-top shtick.”

The network has also lost an enormous number of subscribers in recent years, making the possible high-profile departure perhaps a cost-cutting move.

That tends to happen when media outlets cease being in the entertainment business and go full SJW. (hint: never go full SJW.)
