Michael Smith was at ESPN for 15 years, he grew up there and became the co-anchor (along with Jemele Hill) of one of the net’s marquee shows, the 6pm SportsCenter. But as soon as they started, things started going downhill. It was a very rough end to his time at ESPN but he’s grateful for every moment and now that he’s out he feels liberated! Here he details the what happened when they got the show and how everything fell apart. This will take you inside the world of TV and ESPN like nothing you’ve ever heard. It’s Michael’s deepest and most revealing interview ever. Let me know what you think! Instagram @toureshow.
