Looks like Dan Le Batard’s future at ESPN has reportedly been decided.
Le Batard met with ESPN president Jimmy Pitaro in New York City yesterday.
The radio host and Highly Questionable star’s meeting with ESPN brass came following his rant about the “send her back!” chants at a President Trump rally.
The ESPN personality was highly critical of both the rant and ESPN’s stance on politics, saying the network has taken the easy way out.
“If you’re not calling it abhorrent, obviously racist, dangerous rhetoric, then you’re complicit,” Le Batard said on his radio show last week. “This is deeply offensive to me as somebody whose parents made all the sacrifices to get to this country. Send her back? How are you any more American than her? You’re more privileged? You’re whiter?”
Le Batard added that ESPN will only discuss something “political” when there’s a clear sports angle.
Multiple media insiders have confirmed he is going to stick with ESPN.
