I have not been shy in supporting the work done by ESPN Ombudsman Le Anne Schreiber since she took over the post in 2007. Schreiber’s contract runs out after her March column and ESPN will be searching for a replacement.
Schreiber had not granted any interviews about her role at ESPN until only recently when the announcement of her departure was announced.
In our interview we touch upon a wide range of issues regarding her time as Ombudsman. She shares with us her views on the state of ESPN as well as sports media in general.
Thanks to Le Anne for taking the time to speak with us. Here’s hoping her replacement is as candid and and has as much impact with the powers that be at ESPN.
