Adnan Virk has a new gig.
The former ESPN personality ousted after being accused of leaking confidential company information is now reportedly working for DAZN.
Virk to work for former ESPN boss
The New York Post reports that Virk will host a new baseball show for the subscription sports stream service headed by former ESPN president John Skipper. Skipper left the network in 2017, citing a struggle with cocaine addiction and an extortion plot by someone from whom he bought drugs.
Virk was a rising star at the network who called baseball games, hosted “Baseball Tonight” and made regular appearances on ESPN’s radio network.
Virk accused of leaking ESPN information
The Post reported in February that ESPN accused Virk of leaking information to sports media site Awful Announcing about the network’s plans to not bring “Baseball Tonight” back on a nightly basis this season.
