Teinowitz, one half of The Afternoon Saloon, will be off the air for the rest of the week.
He opened his show on Tuesday by apologizing to listeners and said he made “a horrible mistake in judgment.”
“We take this matter very seriously,” said Josh Krulewitz, an ESPN spokesman. “We all decided it was best for him to address the situation on air directly with his listeners, which he did Tuesday.”
