Longtime ESPN anchor Sage Steele reportedly has tested positive for Covid-19, and has also been removed from the network’s airwaves for at least a week.
This, according to the sports business news site Front Office Sports.
Steele, who hosts the Noon ET edition of SportsCenter these days, will also reportedly not participate in the espnW: Women + Sports Summit, which takes place Oct. 18-20.
Steele ignited controversy recently during an appearance on The Uncut with Jay Cutler podcast. She openly objected to the “sick and scary” mandate that all Walt Disney Company staffers be vaccinated by Sept. 30. She is vaccinated, however, expressing a desire to keep her job at the company.
