Sports Business Reporter Kristi Dosh Announces She Is Leaving ESPN

Kristi Dosh announced on her personal blog this morning she is leaving ESPN after working there for two years as a sports business reporter. Dosh will resume her college sports-focused website,, work as a freelance writer and has accepted a position as adjunct sports marketing professor at the Univ. of North Florida in Jacksonville. "My contract has expired at ESPN, and I won't be signing a new one," Dosh wrote. "Earlier this year, ESPN made the decision to shut down a section of called Playbook, which included the sports business page. Since then, the way my job worked behind the scenes drastically changed. I don't think it was working for me or for ESPN, which is why I'm moving on. ... I have some great options moving forward" (Eric Fisher, Staff Writer).
