Longtime anchor Kenny Mayne leaves ESPN as network extends Chris Berman: ‘Salary cap casualty’ [Video]

Longtime ESPN personality and “SportsCenter” host Kenny Mayne announced on Monday that he’s leaving the network after 27 years.

On the same day, ESPN announced that it’s extending the contract of network stalwart and “NFL Primetime” host Chris Berman. It’s not clear if the two transactions are related.

Mayne, 61, announced his departure on Twitter, describing himself as a “salary cap casualty” while thanking the executives who hired him.

Mayne didn’t expound on the reason for his departure, and ESPN didn’t immediately issue a statement. Given the dry sense of humor that is his trademark, Mayne’s statement leaves room for interpretation over the nature of his exit.

Mayne joined ESPN in 1994 and quickly became a fixture alongside hosts like Dan Patrick and Keith Olberman who made made “SportsCenter” standard viewing for sports fans in the 1990s. He played several roles across ESPN and ESPN2 and is best known

Lsu Tigers Banning Rb Derrius Guice, Firing Longtime Law Agency

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Deputies in a South Florida county are being instructed not to enforce an anti-rioting law signed by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis last week, except it’s completely essential. Tim Harlow covers visitors and transportation points within the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, and likes to get out of the workplace, even during rush hour. He additionally covers the suburbs in northern Hennepin and all of Anoka counties, plus breaking news and weather. “We have a deep concern that police here seem to have used dangling air fresheners as an excuse for making a pretextual cease, something police do all too often to focus on Black individuals,” the ACLU said in an announcement. “Having armed police making site visitors stops is a harmful, racist and pointless follow that does not help public safety.”

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. On today, his last day at ESPN, I along with many others, salute him and wish him all the best in his next chapter,” said Seth Markman, ESPN’s vice president of production
