Disney Takes Budget Axe to ESPN

Heading into the Fourth of July holiday weekend, Disney made approximately 20 cuts to ESPN’s on-air staff, laying off Keyshawn Johnson and Max Kellerman from the recently cancelled ESPN Radio morning driveim show, as well as NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy, ESPN television personality Suzy Kolber, and others.  These layoffs come as little surprise as Disney had announced earlier this year that it would be eliminating some 7,000 positions across the entire company.
