Happening now, just getting word that ESPN has terminated Baseball Tonight analyst Steve Phillips for his affair with a 22 year old production assistant.
From ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys who put this on his Twitter account:
Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN. His ability to be an effective rep of ESPN has been significantly & irreparably damaged.
This is not a surprise as ESPN fired Harold Reynolds for a sexual harassment incident a couple of years ago, but what Steve Phillips did was more serious, actually sleeping with a co-worker and which eventually caused the production assistant to go Fatal Attraction on him.
More to follow.
