News: Bomani Jones and ESPN are expected to part ways, Post Sports+ has learned. It is more a matter of when, not if.
Big Money: ESPN has been scaling back on salaries. Jones previously had a three-year contract that averaged more than $2 million per year, according to sources. In Jones’ next contract, which was agreed to after “High Noon,” his show with Pablo Torre, was canceled, ESPN cut Jones’ salary to a little more than $1 million per year on a two-year deal. That current contract expires in March.
There is no departure agreement yet, but it would be shocking if Jones remains. If ESPN were going to keep him, it would have kept Dan Le Batard’s old show “Highly Questionable” on the air and made Jones the host.
