  • Will ESPN Suspend Dan Le Batard?

ESPN's Dan Le Batard has reportedly made a decision to not go on his own radio show today in the wake of his political comments on the air last week.

Pitaro stood his ground despite Le Batard's efforts to get permission to talk politics going forward.

However, by Friday, ESPN sent out a memo reiterating its recently established policy of avoiding overtly political discussions and sticking to sports unless a political issue intersected directly with sports.

"We here at ESPN don't have the stomach for the fight", Le Batard said.

The Dan Le Batard Show, which airs every week day on Miami's WAXY-790, is simulcast nationwide on ESPN Radio affiliates and ESPNEWS. Then we have the power to run with it. Weak-ass shield.

Le Batard will still host his television program, "Highly Questionable", on Monday and is expected to return to the radio on Tuesday. Le Batard has chosen not go to on radio today, but will do his TV show.

That particular segment of Le Batard's show clearly violates that policy, and according to Sports Business Daily, Le Batard spent the weekend trying to convince Pitaro to relax the policy.

In the wake of the episode, ESPN has sought to reinforce its no-politics edict publicly, with officials telling reporters that the policy remains unchanged. Before Pitaro took over, the network was enmeshed in a series of politics-related controversies, including when former ESPN writer and TV host Jemele Hill tweeted that Trump was a white supremacist.
