For what seems like it has been brewing for some time now, Dan LeBatard and ESPN will finally part ways come early January.
It’s been known that since former ESPN President John Skipper left the company, LeBatard has had his issues with the “suits” as he calls the company executives and their intrusion his job as host of his popular radio show, The Dan LeBatard Show With Stugotz.
ESPN laid off LeBatard’s producer Chris Cote last month without speaking to him first, which could have been the final straw. Dan opted to rehire Cote on his own and gave his a raise in doing so.
The final show of The Dan LeBatard Show With Stugotz will air on Jan 4, which will also be the last day Dan appears on Highly Questionable.
