Re: ESPN Slashes 500 Jobs in Major Cost-Cutting Move

As someone who's been behind the glass in the control room during these kinds of shows, I have to say I know nothing of this on-air personality, but this is certainly a class act.  

ESPN radio host 'blindsided' by producer's layoff, says he will rehire him, pay salary on his own

Not only that, he's giving the guy a raise.

Holy smokes! Check out the comments after this story.  Nothing about sports, or any thoughts about 500 people losing their jobs.  All the comments political and very negative.  Pretty sad.

He's very high profile on ESPN Radio and TV.  He can afford it.  He sometimes fills in on Pardon the Interruption which TSN shows.

It's good to have comments from people who actually tuned in.
