Awful Announcing has learned that Mike Hill has been let go by ESPN. An official statement from ESPN says it was a "mutual decision with and by Mike and ESPN. We wish him the best in his next chapter."
The ESPN Radio show that he co-hosted with Mark Schlereth that was titled "Hill & Schlereth" will now be known as "Schlereth & Company."
Sources have informed Awful Announcing that Hill was called into ESPN offices and was told that he was being let go at the end of his contract which management had thought was in a month. However, Hill's contract was to expire in June 2014.
The show ISN'T called "Schlereth & Company". It's called "Sedano and Stink" Replaced the leaving Mike Hill with Jorge Sedano. Stink is Mark Schlereth's nickname.
Great that Hill is gone. If we could only get rid of Coach & Company. Coach is an idiot as well. The most under utilized asset that ESPN has is Adnan Virk.
schlereth isn't on the espnradio.com nav anymore. i smell another 3 hour block of espn radio tonight. i second the adnan virk comment.
So now we have Schlereth and Company on ESPN Radio immediately following the nearly unlistenable Coach and Company? Is this ESPN's way of saving money?
Give Adnan Virk a show.
Whenever he was on SC, I would change the channel. He made his segments about him. He needs to grow as a broadcaster and ESPN is better off without him.
How the hell did ESPN not know when his contract was ending? Letting him go is dumb either way. I hate ESPN more and more every day. Heat, Jets and Tebow are all they care about
That is horrible news. I enjoyed listening to him and Schlereth banter on the radio. A good mix. Best wishes and good luck in the future. I know you will land on your feet!
@danieldubayHe made his segments about him.
He did work for ESPN, didn't he?
