PostSubject: ESPN fires Sean Salisbury   Thu Feb 28, 2008 10:42 am

Salisbury out, Carter in

Sean Salisbury, never
at a loss for words, said Tuesday he's leaving ESPN after 12 years to
"expand my horizons. I have created a brand, and it's time to expand
into other opportunities in TV, radio, Internet, publishing, movies and
public speaking, among others."

ESPN offered a far shorter farewell, wishing Salisbury the best.

Quote :

Insiders say Salisbury's contract was up and some at the network found
his on-air style grating and were troubled by off-air issues.

Salisbury, who paired with Steve Rosenbloom during a short-lived stint as a morning host on ESPN's WMVP-AM 1000 in Chicago, reportedly was suspended in 2006 for sending an inappropriate photo from his cell phone.

The incident made him a target of blogs such as deadspin.com and thebiglead.com.

Salisbury's agent, Steve Mandell, could not be reached for comment.

Salisbury essentially will be replaced by former All-Pro wide receiver Cris Carter, who will begin April 1.

Thank god. On a side note, Cris Carter is one of my favorite analyst and I'm glad he got a job after Inside the NFL went off air.
