ESPN Chief Bodenheimer to Depart after 33 Years
By Community | May 27, 2014
ESPN are set to lose their Executive Chairman George Bodenheimer after more than three decades at the company this week.
Bodenheimer had relinquished day-to-day responsibilities to John Skipper at the start of 2012. He served as the company’s president for 13 years, originally joining ESPN in 1981 as a driver in the mail room.
The network said Tuesday that Bodenheimer’s last day will be Saturday.
Bodenheimer says: “ESPN’s future is bright, which is of great comfort to anyone who cares deeply about our company.”
Skipper calls Bodenheimer a “uniquely gifted leader.”
