Deadspin has been your worldwide leader in coverage today of layoffs at the Worldwide Leader. ESPN is reportedly laying off hundreds of its 7,000 employees. Per Deadspin:
ESPN is laying off a portion of its staff today, a network spokesman confirms to us. How many? ESPN won't say. A tipster told us earlier today that it would be more than 400 staffers. A source at ESPN said that number is a little high, but it appears to be in the hundreds.
There are plenty of other details in the Deadspin post. Regardless, not a great day in Bristol.
