Sports Reporter Josina Anderson Reportedly Out at ESPN

NFL reporter and insider Josina Anderson will no longer be working at ESPN once her contract ends, according to The New York Post.

New York Post Sports writer Andrew Marchand reported the news on his Twitter account.

Marchand previously wrote about the expected news back in February 2020.

Anderson has been working at the sports network for 9 years. She was named ESPN’s first female NFL insider in 2015. Anderson became engulfed in controversy back in November for her report on the Myles Garrett-Mason Rudolph incident.

Marchand states, “She ran into trouble at times with ESPN executives. After the Myles Garrett incident in which the Browns defensive lineman hit Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph with Rudolph’s helmet, Anderson tweeted, “I would bet Myles Garrett will say he heard Mason Rudolph call him something egregious. Never seen Garrett act like that, ever.”

“She also tweeted out an image in which she said Rudolph grabbed Garrett in a private area. She later apologized for it and said other angles proved her original tweet was incorrect.”

According to Marchand, ESPN veterans Field Yates, Jeremy Fowler, Dan Graziano, and Dianna Russini will help fill the void left by Anderson and the network’s newest reporter, Kimberley Martin, who just joined ESPN in March, coming from Yahoo Sports.

Anderson had made regular appearances on Sunday NFL Countdown, NFL Live, and SportsCenter. Before gaining employment at ESPN, she was a reporter for 6 years with Fox 31 in Denver. She also ran track as a student-athlete at the University of North Carolina.
