John Clayton out at ESPN, but staying on Seattle radio

Latest ESPN layoff: Long-time NFL insider let go

When Dan Patrick left the network, he started the rumor that I have a ponytail that you can't see.

The longtime National Football League insider, who has been a fixture of ESPN's National Football League coverage for 23 years, announced that he will no longer be contributing to the network. Credit to the Hall of Fame writer, as he went out thanking his former co-workers on his way out the door.

The Professor's tenure at ESPN is coming to an end.

Longtime Puget Sound-based National Football League writer and reporter John Clayton is being let go by ESPN, but will still be on the airwaves in Seattle.

The Sporting News report notes that KIRO is owned by Bonneville International, and licenses the ESPN name.

The increasing political content on ESPN has also reportedly taken a toll on viewership, and by extension, revenue according to many media industry observers. "I fill in on Sirius on moving the chains". "I'm done with my segment!" However, when it comes to breaking and covering news, there's no doubt ESPN is going to be affected in some way when people like Clayton and others are no longer working at the network.

Since then, names of those affected have dribbled out, with an ESPN source indicating that it was up to laid-off employees to announce their status.
