ESPN Suspends Kellerman In Wake Of Domestic Violence Comments
Published August 10, 2014
ESPN has suspended “SportsNation” host Max Kellerman until this Thursday “for an inappropriate conversation on ESPN-LA Radio surrounding Ray Rice and domestic abuse.” Kellerman, on the “Mason & Ireland” show this past Monday, “admitted to hitting his girlfriend many years ago.” Sources said that “while the content of his story was disturbing, the suspension was all about Kellerman ... not adhering to ESPN brass' warning concerning the Rice topic being a highly sensitive one” (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/9). Kellerman is the “third ESPN host to be suspended in the past two weeks” (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 8/9).
