ESPN Radio Suspends Hosts For Transphobic Comments

We strongly believe two of our employees crossed the line when discussing a transsexual person on their program last Thursday. Such intolerance and insensitivity will never be tolerated by this company. Due to the nature of this conversation, the pair have been temporarily removed from ESPN980’s Sports Reporters program.”
