The SportsNewser Interview: Gary Stevenson

Just days after he was formally announced as president of Pac-12 Enterprises, SportsNewser had a chance to chat exclusively with Gary Stevenson.

Ron Franklin Fired From ESPN After Derogatory Comments Towards Jeannine Edwards

ESPN has fired announcer Ron Franklin according to John Ourand of the Sports Business Journal.

“Based on what occurred last Friday, we have ended our relationship with him,” ESPN said in a statement.

Franklin was pulled from last Friday’s Chick-fil-A Bowl broadcast after making derogatory comments towards colleague Jeannine Edwards.

In a statement yesterday, Franklin apologized for his comments. “I said some things I shouldn’t have and am sorry,” Franklin said. “I deserved to be taken off the Fiesta Bowl.”

ESPN Producer Arrested For Peering In Neighbor's Window, Caught Masturbating

An ESPN producer turned himself into the authorities on Tuesday after he was caught peering into a neighbor’s window and masturbating while she was getting dressed.

Neil Goldberg was charged with public indecency, simple trespass, disorderly conduct and breach of peace, according to police in Connecticut. Last month, a neighbor walking her dog spotted Goldberg standing on a stool and masturbating while peering in a window. Goldberg later admitted to police that he watched his neighbor get dressed in her bedroom.

The 52-year-old Goldberg is a coordinating producer for ESPN’s motorsports coverage. He posted $1,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in Superior Court later this month in Hartford, Conn.
