Colin Cowherd appears to be the first member of ESPN to chime in on the network’s hiring of Jason Whitlock. Here’s a snippet; he went on for nearly three minutes.
“He’s kind of a controversial columnist who has been critical of ESPN .. We just hired Keith Olbermann, who is a controversial, polarizing figure who has been critical of ESPN … if you hold grudges in our business, you’re just losing out on really good people. It’s a lot like pro sports … We’re in the business of hiring unique voices.”
So. Who’s the next unique voice ESPN will be hiring? Or is John Skipper finished acquiring talent for the summer?
