Sara Walsh Let Go From ESPN After Returning From Maternity Leave
Sara Walsh has been out on maternity leave after having twins recently, but that didn’t stop the suits at ESPN from axing the longtime Sportscenter anchor, as Sara joined the long list of cuts being made by the “World Wide Leader in Sports.”
Yesterday, Walsh announced that she was due back from her maternity leave today, but was surprised to learn that she did not have a job to go back to.
She tweeted out this morning that, “I was truly excited to return to work from maternity leave with twins. Unfortunately, I will not be coming back as I was included in the recent layoffs.Much appreciation to those I worked with, and especially to those who watched.”
As for ESPN, it seems really low to fire a new mother of twins without any notice. It’s not a good look PR-wise and just wrong.
