ESPN to commence LAYOFFS as part of larger Disney job cuts
By Ramon Tomey // Apr 21, 2023

Sports channel ESPN is set to begin layoffs, which are part of larger job cuts announced by its parent The Walt Disney Company.

People familiar with the matter confirmed the impending layoffs, adding that several on-air talents and management will be included. The sources spoke on condition of anonymity as the discussions regarding the layoffs are private.

Still, CNBC reported that the number of layoffs at the sports network remains unclear and the decision process is still fluid. A spokesperson for ESPN declined to comment on the matter.

The job cuts at ESPN form part of Disney's projected 7,000 terminations that CEO Bob Iger first announced in February. During a Feb. 8 earnings call, Iger said the job cuts will save the company $5.5 billion. The second round of job cuts includes the ones at ESPN and an additional 15 percent of staff members in Disney's entertainment division.

According to a Bloomberg report, the second round of cuts will cover Disney's television, film, theme parks and corporate divisions. People who confirmed the layoffs on condition of anonymity added that the terminations will affect every region where Disney operates. Some affected workers will be notified as early as April 24, the outlet added.

The first round of job cuts at Disney happened last month, with the entire metaverse strategies unit and part of its Beijing office being laid off. A third round of cuts at the entertainment giant is still impending.

This was not the first time ESPN laid off employees. Back in 2020, the sports network terminated about 300 employees amid the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

"We will be reducing our workforce, impacting approximately 300 valued team members in addition to 200 open positions," ESPN CEO James Pitaro wrote in a memo at the time. "We are parting ways with some exceptional team members – some of whom have been here for a long time – and all of whom have made important contributions to ESPN."

Nolte: Disney layoffs a result of going woke

In a Feb. 9 op-ed, Breitbart's John Nolte put in his two cents about Iger's initial announcement of job cuts at Disney – that eventually came to fruition. The commentator pointed out that the Disney+ streaming service "has stalled out" in the domestic market instead of growing its subscriber base.

"That obviously isn't happening – which is why Iger is panicking with massive layoffs, consolidations and cost-cutting," wrote Nolte. "We all know what's happening here: The grooming chickens are coming home to roost. No decent parent feels safe leaving their child alone with Disney+, which has become a streaming service full of racism, adult sexuality and pro-mutilation propaganda."

Nolte also mentioned the poor performance of two animated features from Disney – "Lightyear" and "Strange World" – as another reason for Disney's losses.

Both movies "bombed at the box office due to Disney's obscene decision to include homosexual plots," he said. "These are features aimed at children and no parent wants to exit a theater forced to discuss alternate sexual lifestyles with their five-year-old."

The Breitbart senior writer branded Disney as a "child predator," comparing it to "the entertainment equivalent of a creepy guy in a park holding a lollipop and wearing nothing but a raincoat."

"I wouldn't let Disney near my kids, and the only way this evil stops is through market pressure. If I were king, any parent who subscribed to Disney+ would receive a visit from social services. You are supposed to protect your child's innocence, not betray it with Disney's woke porn." has more stories about mass layoffs in America.
