Has The ESPN Book Already Cost An Anchor His Job?

We are still six months away from Those Guys Have All The Fun: Inside The World of ESPN by Jim Miller and Tom Shales hits stores, but the impact is already being felt at the Bristol headquarters reportedly.

According to The Big Lead, the latest rumor is ESPN has decided not to renew one anchor’s contract because of the amount of damaging information in the book:

Granted, this anchor has something of a checkered background in Bristol – he’s already been suspended once, and he’s been pilloried by blogs for alleged transgressions – but the book’s contents allegedly made it an easy decision for ESPN. We won’t name the anchor – yet – but we can say that he’s definitely not an “A-lister.”

Let the speculation begin.
