Subject: Important Reminder
All of us in Production and throughout the company take great pride in the work of our on air talent. You are our direct connection with sports fans and contribute significantly in making ESPN the leader in sports media. Recently, there have been numerous incidents in which the word “sucks” has been used on our air. This word is simply not appropriate for ESPN. What you say and the language you use is important for our audience and sports fans of all ages. Please be mindful of this starting immediately.
