Title: No more updates from Adnan...
Post by: HBTHogs on February 04, 2019, 10:28:41 am
ESPN star Adnan Virk fired, escorted out in leak investigation

Seems like a risky move for someone who had as much going for them as he did.

Hopefully something juicy to lead to getting fired like that.

He will end up working at a rival network soon. Dude is one of the best in the business. Besides, I donít put any stock into anything that crappy network says. They have an obvious bias on who says what, depending what side of the political aisle they reside.

The industry that thrives on leaks doesn't like it when one of theirs allegedly does it.

Good luck to Adnan moving forward and squeezing money out of ESPN on the way out.

Thanks for the update.  Wow, yeah that's definitely not juicy enough to be worth losing a seven figure contract over.  He's gotta be sick over it.  Dumb move though, clearly asked for the information with the intent of passing it on.

Apparently Adnan did't tell whomever he was passing the info along to not to copy his work word for word... Rookie mistake

Word around the campfire is he spoke about the Baseball Tonight cancellation before it was announced. That info ended up getting tweeted.

And then denied being behind the leak on more than one occasion. But, apparently he used his WORK phone to leak out the info. Oops.

Having done some contract work for some of the ESPN brass, I would bet dollars Adnan leaked info on upcoming programming and/or staffing changes. No bueno given ESPNís sensitivity to programming both on the legacy channels and ESPN plus. Those kind of decisions are usually communicated during analyst day as part of a strategic shift and on rare occasion, the earnings call. DIS reports earnings manana after the bell, IIRC.

Wow. Where have we heard THAT before?
