Longtime ‘SportsCenter’ Host Trey Wingo Leaves ESPN

One of ESPN’s longtime faces is leaving the network. Trey Wingo, who hosted “SportsCenter” and the network’s NFL Draft coverage over a two-decade tenure, is exiting the network after his contract was not renewed.

The decision not to re-up Wingo’s contract came as part of ESPN’s massive job cuts, the New York Post reported earlier this month (the NY Post also reported back in September that Wingo was being let go). The host’s departure was not confirmed until today, which is also his last day at the network.

“I can barely remember a day which didn’t involve working side by side with this guy. @wingoz has been an incredible teammate & friend for more than 2 decades.

ESPN has shown two episodes of the 10-part series each Sunday over the past month before Scott Van Pelt hosts a special “SportsCenter” to break it all down. Van Pelt has talked with reporters and players
