Dan Le Batard is off the air following his rant against ESPN management’s no-politics edict, at least for one day on one medium.
The polarizing personality is skipping his radio show Monday, though he is expected to appear on his structured 30-minute television program, “Highly Questionable,” the New York Post’s Andrew Marchand reports. Le Batard is supposed to return to the radio Tuesday.
Last Thursday, Le Batard condemned ESPN’s ban on discussing social and political issues, unless they are part of a sports storyline. The impassioned soliloquy came in response to President Donald Trump’s racist attacks against Rep. Ilhan Omar and the “send her back!” chants directed at her during one of his recent rallies.
